Relic shows are cancelling left and right, and one show promoter told me he didn't think there'd be any shows until next year. If that's the case, we'll sorely miss seeing our friends. Who knows what will happen, but we're still here operating in this new, online-only world. Getting things to where we can photograph and ship them is a little more challenging than usual, but fortunately some good people keep asking us to buy and sell their accumulations so we're plugging away! Please be patient and stay safe.

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.

Item Number: A01113

Item Title: Nice group of Hotchkiss projectiles dug by Wilbur Bedall - 3 Wiards!

Price: $725

Shipping: Included

Provenance: US






Location Recovered: See description

Description:Wilbur Bedall was a prolific digger who found lots of great projectiles. In many cases he masterfully re-fabricated the sabots and I think that's what he did here on #123. Still, there is a lot of value in these projectiles:

#123 is a bolt for the 2.6" diameter bore Wiard rifle. It was recovered at Freeman's Ford.

The other bolt (#99) for the 2.6" Wiard was recovered at Port Republic. #36 is bolt for the Wiard rifle that smashed on something hard and broke its nose. Its recovery location is unknown.

The 3in case shot shell is a nice one that was recovered in Piedmont.

Shipping is included.
