  1. Excavated, large section of a 12 pound Bormann fused shell.  This large shell section was recovered many years ago from an area on private property related to Breckinridge's charge here at the Battle of Stones River.  In this famous charge, Breckinridge's Confederate Infantry charged head-on into 59 Confederate cannons that were concealed behind brush on the opposite side of Stones River at McFadden's Ford.  This ill-fated charge resulted in over 1800 Confederates killed in less than one hour and effectively sealed the course of the Battle of Stones River.  This shell section is almost 1/2 of the shell and has a portion of the fuse hole.  It will make a fantastic desk display.--$85.SOLD

  2. Extremely rare "ground burst" Confederate 3 inch Read Parrott with lead side-loader plug.  This projectile was recovered from near Petersburg, Virginia, and all the pieces were virtually in one large hole where the shell had exploded after entering the ground.  The projectile has been nicely cleaned and reassembled to be displayed as it would have been before exploding.  The lead side-loader plug is intact as well as the copper Confederate time fuse.  This Confederate projectile carries a very high rarity.--$450.SOLD*

  3. 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.

  4. Very cool, excavated fragment of a large Naval cannon ball.  This fragment burst in such a way that exactly one-half of the threaded fuse hole where the Naval water cap fuse is clearly visible.  This would be a fantastic way to display your Naval water cap fuse.  This projectile fragment was recovered near Charleston, South Carolina.--$45.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Excavated set of 3 Naval Grape - The larger balls are roughly 2 inches in diameter.  These were recovered on private property at Vicksburg, MS. many years ago.-- $65. for all three

  16. Very nice artillery display containing five iron balls ranging from case shot to 6-pound size canister and 12 pound size canister ball, and finally a large Naval grape.--$75. for the entire display.

  17.  Nice condition, original, Civil War Artillery lanyard.  No artillery display is complete without a lanyard.--$425.
