We just picked up a couple collections of artillery and other relics we are starting to list. Note that there will be more than artillery, bullets and fuses listed. We have buttons, camp items, US plates, etc.

Mansfield, Ohio Show was good as always. Our next show will be in Brandon, MS on June 8 and 9.

We continue to experience intermittent delivery of order emails, so it's wise to email us directly at cwbullet@hotmail.com and carl@sitherwood.com to be sure your order gets through. Thank you for your patience while we try to address this.

A00687 - Super rare round nose Texas 20pdr Read

Item Number: A00687

Item Title: Super rare round nose Texas 20pdr Read

Price: $499

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: CS

Type: Read

Size: 3.67in

Sabot: Wrought iron

Fuse: Wood time fuse adapter (missing)

Book:

Location Recovered: Western theater

Description:This Read is not listed in the books because the Eastern biased artillery book authors probably never saw one, or at least not many. There is a sleeved Read listed that is similar but different. Lawrence Christopher called these Texas Reads, presumably for a reason, but he is gone now. At 8.5in long and with the distinctive round nose, this little puppy is so ugly its cute. Has a neat gas bubble casting flaw in the side and a wrought iron sabot that is partially missing or this would be a much more expensive shell. Still displays nicely and I am pretty sure it will be a long time before you see another one.
