Our next show will not be Gettysburg, but instead will be the Richmond Show the weekend of November 17-18. We are sorry not to be able to make G-burg, but really looking forward to Richmond.

We still have some electronic orders that do not get delivered via the website. We think it is a Captcha issue so please check that part of the inquiry form. If you do not receive a response from us quickly on an inquiry about an item we have listed, however, please email us.

Item Title: 2.6in Percussion Fused Hotchkiss for the Wiard Rifle with Anvil Cap that Unscrews

Price: $175

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US

Type: Hotchkiss for the Wiard Rifle

Size: 2.6in

Fuse: 2pc percussion fuse

Book: Dickey and George (1993 Edition) Page 161

Location Recovered: Virginia

Description:Nose and base cup to a 2.6in shell for the Wiard rifle. These are tough shells to get -- rarity 8+ in D&G. The iron percussion fuse anvil cap on this one unscrews for display and the iron nipple comes out of the slider to expose the inerting hole. I have not applied pressure to separate the base cup and nose which are stuck together but probably could be separated. Neat display piece.
