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.

Mansfield, Ohio Show was good as always. Our next show will be in Brandon, MS on June 8 and 9.

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

Because it was in an anaerobic environment, this case is not as tarnished as a ground dug one would be. There is a small expansion split shown in some of the views below, but it will still display very nicely. Neat bullet from a remarkable point in the war.
