  1. 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.

  2. Quite rare, excavated, 3 inch, "case shot" Shenkl Federal artillery projectile.  This projectile was recovered many years ago on private property near Fredericksburg, Virginia.  It is quite a rarity to recover a blunt nose Shenkl case shot projectile with the pewter combination fuse remaining intact.  This projectile has a complete combination fuse, has been cleaned, coated, disarmed, and is ready for display.--$425.

  3. Very nice condition excavated 3 inch Federal Hotchkiss projectile recovered many, many years ago by Wayne Williams at the base of Missionary Ridge, Tennessee.  This hotchkiss projectile has nose - cup - and rifled lead sabot all remaining intact.  It has been nicely cleaned - coated - and I have disarmed it, so it is ready to go on display.--$275.

  4. Extremely rare, fired, 1862 date, 3 inch Hotchkiss canister round.  The Hotchkiss base has nice rifling from actually being fired and is crisply marked, "Hotchkiss - 3 in. - January 7, 1862 Patent".  My friend, Wayne Williams, recovered this round many years ago on private property near Chickamauga, Georgia.  Wayne recovered enough canister balls to reconstruct what the interior of the canister round would have looked like.  This is a super nice Civil War artillery artifact in that it is both maker marked and dated.--$450.SOLD*

  5. Extremely rare to recover, excavated, emerald green "Selma Arsenal" slotted, Confederate Bormann cast copper under plug.  This example remains in perfect condition and was recovered on private property at the Battle of Chickamauga, Georgia.  These are quite rare to recover.--$49.SOLD

  6. Absolutely mint beautiful, excavated, 3 inch, copper time fuse, Confederate Read projectile.  This beautiful shell was recovered about 40 years ago on private property near Chickamauga, Georgia.  The iron could not be much nicer with a nice, crisp mold seam, and the brass sabot and copper time fuse both remain perfectly intact.  The shell is cleaned, coated, and I disarmed it today; so it is ready to go on display.--$750.SOLD

  7. Nice condition, excavated, 3 inch Federal Hotchkiss projectile.  This shell was recovered near Missionary Ridge at Chattanooga, Tennessee.  The shell cleaned up nicely, and you can still read the Hotchkiss patent information on the bottom of the base cup.  The lead sabot was found nearby and displays nicely with the shell.  This projectile has an open fuse hole with good threads, and a fuse could easily be added if a person wished.--$195.

  8. Excavated, 6 pound Confederate Bormann ball recovered many years ago from private property near the Battle of Chickamauga, Georgia.  The ball has been cleaned and coated and also disarmed.  The Bormann fuse blew out of the top of the shell and was recovered about 50 feet from the ball itself.  It is displayed with the ball but is not attached and can be removed.--$375.

  9. Excavated, almost 1/2 of a 24 lb. size cannonball.  We have included three 12 pounder size canister balls and three 6 pounder size canister balls.  This entire display was recovered on private property at Vicksburg and will make an excellent desk display.--$85.SOLD

  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 Confederate brass time fuse.  The fuses are displayed in a quality made oak display case.--$150. for fuses with case.

  11. Very nice condition, excavated, COMPLETE 3-inch Federal Hotchkiss shell consisting of nose, cup, lead sabot, and brass time fuse all remaining perfectly intact.  The lead sabot retains clear rifling marks from the cannon barrel.  This one was recovered many years ago from a lawn off Leland Lane, 2nd days' fighting, Battle of Nashville, Tennessee.  This is a "case shot", because after I drilled and disarmed the shell, I could hear case shot balls rattle around inside.--$295.

  12. Very nice condition, excavated, 12 pound, solid shot cannon ball recovered about 200 yards north of Shy's Hill at the Battle of Nashville.  It has been cleaned, coated, and is ready for display.--$195.SOLD*

  19. 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.

  20. Excavated 3 inch time fuzed Hotchkiss projectile recovered over 40 years ago along Battery Lane at the Battle of Nashville.  The projectile is safe, and remains uncleaned - just as dug all those years ago.  Both the fuze and the cup can be removed for display.  This projectile will nicely clean if so desired.--$195.SOLD

  21. Excavated 24 lb. size cannonball that has an open fuze hole and was recovered by Calvin Sharpe about 30 years ago on private property .at Vicksburg, MISS.  I believe this ball to be CS, and would have taken a threaded copper CS time fuze.  The ball is 5.68 inches in diameter, and is safe and ready for display.--$250.SOLD

  22. 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.

  26. 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.

  27. Beautifully done cast exact replica of a 30 lb. Federal Parrott Projectile.  The master original that this was cast from was recovered "The Seige Of Vicksburg, MS."  This is a very nice display piece.--$75.

  28. Rare, 12 pound size, Confederate, polygonal cavity ball with four side diamond shaped pattern shrapnel inside.  The ball has been cut in half, nicely showing the diamond shaped pieces inside, the wooden drive-in fuse plug, and a large casting flaw typical of Confederate artillery shells.  This will make an excellent addition to someone's Confederate artillery display.  It has been cleaned, coated, and is mounted on a walnut display base.--$295.SOLD
