  1. Excavated Confederate copper Bormann fuse under plug.  This CS under plug was recovered on private property at the Battle of Nashville, Tennessee.--$65.

  2. This is an extremely rare Confederate artillery item to recover anymore.  This is a 3 inch "Tennessee Sabot" or as they used to be - 3 inch "Mullane" floating brass plate.  This was recovered about 40 years ago from the area near Franklin Road where the Battle of Stones River first started.  I personally recovered several of these from the same area.  This will display beautifully with a 3 inch Tennessee Sabot that is missing the floating base plate.--$95.SOLD

  3. Excavated 12 lb. solid shot cannon ball recovered several years ago from a flower bed just off Robertson Acad. drive - 2nd Day - Battle of Nashville.  It has been cleaned, coated, and is ready for display.--$225.SOLD

  4. Excavated, 3.8 inch, "birdcage James" artillery shell.  This projectile was recovered many years ago on private property here at Stones River.  I have disarmed this projectile, and it is ready for display.--$795.SOLD*

  5. Early battlefield pick-up, "raised rib", 3.67 inch Shenkl fragment.  This was picked up long ago here at Stones River and almost appears non-dug.--$25.

  6. Perfect condition, excavated, threaded, zinc, Parrot time fuse.  This fuse was recovered over 40 years ago from private property on the battlefield here at Stones River.  You couldn't hope to find a nicer one.--$48.SOLD

  7. Pretty, green, excavated top portion of a J. P. Schenkl percussion fuse.  The markings, including the October 16, 1861, patent date remain clear as can be.  This was recovered many years ago along the stone wall at the Battle of Nashville, Tennessee, 2nd day fighting.--$45.SOLD

  8. Really nice reproduction US Model 1840 short Mountain Howitzer on a very nicely crafted white oak carriage.  The barrel is 33 inches in length with a bore of 2.5 inches.  The carriage is 80 inches tip to tip in length, 49 inches wide, and 43 inches high.  The owner has fired the cannon with powder and wadding only numerous times.  This will be a beautiful piece to display under a gazebo in front of an Antebellum home.--$7,500.  You pick it up here or we can likely arrange delivery for a fee.

  9. Set of four excavated iron balls ranging in size from canister ball size and on up to a Naval grape.  Quite nice little artillery display.--$75.

  10. Very nice cased display of exploded artillery fuses of different sorts recovered on private property from here at Stones River.  There are several Bormann fuses, a couple Shenkl fuses, a CS dyer fuse, and a couple of iron under-plugs for a total of 14 pieces.  The fuses are displayed in a quality made oak display case.--$150. for fuses with case.

  11. Beautiful condition, virtually non-excavated, quite rare, Confederate "side-loader" brass time fused, case shot, 12 pound cannon ball.  This rare Confederate ball was found being used as a barn door counter-weight in a log barn located near Petersburg, Virginia.  You couldn't ask for a nicer condition, rare, Confederate side-loader cannon ball.--$450.SOLD

  12. Very pretty condition, excavated, 3 inch, Confederate Read projectile.  This projectile was recovered from private property near the Battle of Chickamauga, Georgia.  It has been disarmed, cleaned, coated, and the beautifully rifled brass sabot remains completely intact as well as the brass time fuse.  Confederate artillery shells this nice are seldom being recovered any more.--$695.

  13. Large fragment of a Confederate mortar ball recovered near Vicksburg, Mississippi, with several different size canister balls displayed within it.  This would make a fantastic Civil War desk display.--$95.

  14. Very nice condition, one complete excavated layer of 7 canister balls correct for the 12-pound Napoleon.  The circle of canister balls would measure 4.5 inches in diameter across.  These were extensively used here at Stones River as well as most other battles of the Civil War.--$95. for the entire layer.

  15. Complete excavated layer of canister balls for a 3 inch bore rifled gun.  This complete set of canister balls makes a very nice display.--$75. for the entire set.

  16. Very pretty Battle of Vicksburg, MISS. recovered artillery desk display consisting of a large section of a 24 lb. size cannon ball filled with assorted size grape and cannister balls.--$95.

  17. Excavated, exploded, copper, Confederate time fuse probably from a 12-pound size Confederate canon ball.  This was recovered years ago on private property near the Battle of Chickamauga, Georgia.--$38.SOLD

  18. Excellent condition, 6 lb. gun size, CS fired canister ball and one 12 lb., Napoleon gun size, Federal canister ball.  Both these balls were recovered on private property here at the Battle of Stones River, have been cleaned, coated, and are ready for display.--$45. for both.

  19. Beautifully done cast exact replica of a 2.9 inch Confederate used Burton (or Dyer) projectile.  The original projectile that this was cast from was recovered at 2nd Manassas.  This display is nice enough to be in either a den or relic room.--$75.
