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.

Wheaton, Illinois Show is this Saturday -- 4/27. Mansfield is the following weekend!

We continue to experience intermittent delivery of order emails, so it's wise to email us directly at and to be sure your order gets through. Thank you for your patience while we try to address this.

A01025 - Super bargain 11

Item Number: A01025

Item Title: Super bargain 11

Price: $260

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US

Type: Dahlgren shell

Size: 11in


Fuse: 1861 dated watercap


Location Recovered: Charleston

Description:This 11in ball was recovered by the late Greg Craven in Charleston. It has a nice watercap fuse with the 1861 date so is likely from the early stages of the blockade there and was fired from one of the ironclads.

This shell displays nicely, but there is pitting on the bottom as shown. It spent a couple years in careful electrolysis with the water checked scientifically for salt levels.

This is currently sitting in a suburb of Richmond. It can be shipped, but even at cost that will be pricey so you might want to arrange to go get it.

I don't think you will ever see one of these for less!
