Looks like some promoters are going for it and trying to run their shows. Who knows if enough people will show up to make them worthwhile. I hope it works out but have concerns as we all do. Still figuring out which ones we'll attend this summer, but it looks like we'll try and do them. Stay tuned as the situation is fluid.

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.

Description:Picked this up from the digger on my circuitous route to Dalton. Shows the tin powder tube and canister beautifully. The tube is in two overlapping pieces as originally made (which is kind of counter to the notion of Yankee abundance they they would use the last piece of tubing and overlap them rather than scrap the short ends). When the shell impacted, dirt forced into the fuse hole, snuffing out the fuse and flaring the top of the tin tube. I cannot guarantee that this fragile dirt blockage will survive shipping, but the flared tube will for sure.

This design did not leave much room for many shot. I just sold the other half of this shell and this is the last one I have.
