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.

Price: $425

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US

Type: Type I Hotchkiss shell

Size: 3.8in

Book:

Location Recovered: Vicksburg area

Description:This type didn't make Dickey and George, but an example is shown on the civilwarartillery.com website.

By Vicksburg, the type I Hotchkiss projectiles had been superceded by ones with more effective flame grooves, but the Western theater got a lot of the dregs.

This is in nice, unfired shape. The anvil cap has been unscrewed and misplaced, and a replacement will make this shell just about perfect.
