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.

The object of this patent was to apply within the cannon cartidge powder bags this device to scrape the gun bore and prevent fowling. This is like a Williams Cleaner bullet for cannons!

This is a one of a kind piece tied to its original patent tag by red ribbon (aka "red tape").
