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.

Mike O'Donnell (aka Woodenhead) had some terrific insights on it and others with the 3 flame grooves cut in the sabot.

This shell is straight out of my collection. You can still see my (very removable) catalog label on the bottom. When the thread got going I looked and turns out I have 5 of these so can share one at least.
