  1. Early battlefield recovery, 3 inch Hotchkiss case shot nose.  The shell is clean with three flame grooves, and the brass time fuse adaptor remains intact.  The shell has been disarmed and is ready for display.  (You can shake the shell and hear the case shot balls rattle around inside !!)--$120.SOLD

  2. Group of 3 Civil War cannon friction primers found along the Stone wall at the Battle of Nashville, TN.  One was broken when found and is restored.--$75. for all three primers and glass case

  3. Extremely rare Confederate adapted Bormann time fuze with hole drilled in the center to take a standard paper time fuze.  This was found here at Stones River, and is one of only three that I am aware of ever being recovered here.  This is "sure enough" a Confederate artillery rarity to recover.--$125.

  4. Very RARE massive cast brass sea coast DRIVE-IN Naval Watercap fuze.  This was recovered at Vicksburg, MS about 40 years ago, and is a fuze that most collections are missing.  This one still even has the watercap remaining intact--$150.SOLD

  6. Very pretty excavated 6 # size solid shot cannon ball recovered during the early 1970s from The Battle of Hoover's Gap.  This was a Confederate fired projectile opposing Lilly's Federal Battery.  I have both cleaned and coated it, and it is ready for permanent display.--$175.SOLD

  7. Really pretty condition excavated DROP 3 inch time fuzed Federal Hotchkiss projectile.  This is a beauty recovered many years ago at the second day fighting - Battle of  Nashville, TN. - near the "Rock Wall" area.  It has been lightly cleaned, and I have drilled it.  So - it is ready to go in your collection.--$295.SOLD

  8. Incredibly accurate, resin cast, 3 inch Confederate Mullane projectile.  The original shell that this example was cast from was recovered at the Siege of Vicksburg, Mississippi.  The accuracy of this casting is almost hard to believe.  The projectile is mounted on a nice walnut base with a label describing the shell.--$65.

  9. Unbelievably accurate, Confederate 2.94 inch Burton or Dyer shell.  The original that this was cast from was recovered from the Battle of 2nd Manassas, Virginia.  This would be an excellent addition and compliment to any Civil War relic room, den, or museum.  The recast projectile is mounted on an attractive walnut base.--$65.SOLD

  10. REALLY PRETTY 2.94 inch Confederate Archer bolt cast from an original recovered at Kennesaw Mountain, GA.  This thing is so accurate that you expect it to be heavy when you pick it up !!  It will display beautifully in any Civil War relic room - den - or study !!--$65.

  16. Absolutely beautiful, 1/2 sectioned Schenkl case shot projectile with the pewter combination fuse.  This projectile was among the last done by our friend Sam White of Central Virginia, before his tragic accident..  The powder cavity, the case shot balls, the tar matrix, and the combination fuse are all half sectioned making it easy to see how everything worked.  This would be a fine educational artillery artifact for any Civil War display.--$325.SOLD

  17. Very sought after 42 inch in length Civil War "War-log" that was recovered many years ago from private property near Antietam.  This log has two visible bullets that have been exposed.  Both hullets are Williams Cleaner bullets.  The War Log has been cleaned and coated, and is ready for permanent display.  Through most of its length it is from 7 to 9 inches through.  Nice War Logs often run several thousand dollars.  This is a nice one, and at a very reasonable price.--$850.SOLD

  18. Excellent U.S. artillery vent pick priming wire for cannon.  It was used to puncture the powder bag through the vent at the rear of the tube so that when the fuse friction primer ignited, the cannon would fire.  It is 24" in length overall for a very large gun.--$75.SOLD

  19. Very rare to recover, complete, excavated, Federal Navy, cast brass water cap fuse.  The fuse has the water cap itself intact and is marked, "Ord. and the anchor" and is dated 1861, but the fuse impacted on the "61" and it is barely visible.--$95.SOLD
