M00347 - Radial Vent Cannon Primer

Item Number: M00347

Item Title: Radial Vent Cannon Primer

Price: $85

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US

Model: Model 1896



Location Recovered: Oconee River dump site at Milledgeville, Georgia

Description:These types of friction primers with the coiled wire attachment were invented to prevent injury from the friction primer flying free when the cannon went off. Later guns had the vent hole on the side, bot the top, and so an unattached primer would've shot out right at a gun crew member.
