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 and to be sure your order gets through. Thank you for your patience while we try to address this.

Description:Good half shell from a Bormann common shell recovered from a river in eastern Virginia. There is some cracking on the backside iron that if bumped hard might flake off but it has been fine with normal handling. You can see the spot of this on the left hand of the face view. The face is cut nice and smooth and the interior is very clean. This has the desirable brass underplug. The fuse appears to be a CS lip variant of the Bormann fuse in nice shape. There is not much corrosion on it at all.

Shell half is inert, cleaned and coated.
