A00982 - Relic Condition 6 Pounder Bormann

Item Number: A00982

Item Title: Relic Condition 6 Pounder Bormann

Price: $190

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US/CS

Type: Cannon Ball Case Shot

Size: 6 Pounder (3.67 Inch Caliber)

Sabot: Wood Cup (Missing)

Fuse: Bormann Time Fuse

Book: Dickey and George (1993 Edition) Page 29 A
Melton and Pawl (Paperback Editon) Page 31 A-7

Location Recovered: Unknown

Description:Other than being drilled and the dirt washed off, this ball is as dug. It still has the full original coating of rust. It is a nice looking dug ball. It obviously impacted on the fuse and you can see the scratch marks as it buried itself in the dirt. But unlike many Bormann fuses this one is not corroded and is good firm smooth metal. Unfortunately you can't read any marks on the fuse due to the impact. I think if the buyer were so inclined the iron would clean up nicely.

Shell is inert.
