Item Number: A00945

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

Sabot: Lead driving band (missing)

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.
