A01039 - Nice Example of 8 Inch Solid Shot
Sorry, this item is no longer available!

Item Number: A01039

Item Title: Nice Example of 8 Inch Solid Shot

Price: $225

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: CS

Type: Cannon Ball Solid Shot

Size: 8 Inch Caliber

Sabot: Wood Cup (Missing)

Fuse: N/A


Location Recovered: Spanish Fort, AL

Description:This is a very nice example of an 8" solid shot from Spanish Fort, AL where a lot of great artillery has been found. I belived that only the Confederates had 8" cannon at Spanish Fort so this ball should be CS. There is a big variety of 8" balls used in the American Civil War with all types of different fusing and tong holes. But the 8" solid shot is not very common. We've sold a bunch of 8" shells but not many shot relatively speaking.

This shot is very solid with real good iron. There is a decent mold seam on one side and faint on the other. This is a good example and every collection should have one so be complete.

Note the 3" Read in the 3rd image is to show relative size and not for sale. :)

Shot is cleaned and coated.
