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.

Description:An often used projectile during the Rev War and War of 1812, the 6-lber was being phased out during the Civil War for the more effective 12-lber. But there was still plenty in use especially by the south and especially early in the war. Since I don't have any provenance on this I can't be sure if it is Civil War or earlier nor do I know if it is US, CS or British.

This shot has very good iron with only a little ground action and no pitting. There is only the faintest of a mold seam on it. It is 3.54" in diameter and weighs in at 5lb 15.1 oz. It is a nice shot and displays well.

Shot is hand cleaned and coated.
