Very rare and massive Brooke bolt jettisoned from either the CSS Richmond or the CSS Virginia II in their frantic attempts to get unstuck from the mud at Trent's Reach while getting hammered by Union forces.

This long bolt was the heaviest of the Confederate bolts and likely intended for the new rifled Brooke rifles.

Projectile measures: diameter 6.95in., length 14in., weight 120lbs. Heavy copper disc sabot is unfired and intact. Metal is solid.
