Description:This is a really hard to get artillery round. You rarely see them as put together as the plates are so hard to come by. This is a dug complete Wiard 2.6-inch canister found in Manassas, Virginia. Oddly the thick bottom plate was missing when found so that is an add on from another unknown location. The condition is really good with much of the tin covering still in tact and the lead balls still present. To protect it a Lexan tube has been fitted to the canister. This is from the incomparable canister collection of Dave Gotter.

If you want this canister without the bottom plate because you might have one, deduct $100.
