Bullet and Shell will be at Dalton Show the first weekend in February. We will be picking up a collection on the way so will have lots of fresh to the market bullets and shells.

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.

M00422 - Large, 19in long, Confederate style artillery vent prick

Item Number: M00422

Item Title: Large, 19in long, Confederate style artillery vent prick

Price: $75

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: CS




Location Recovered: Non dug

Description:19" long vent prick for piercing the powder bag through the vent of a cannon. This one must've been for a big Columbiad gun.

This style with the wire twist on the "handle" is generally believed to be Confederate. The twisted part is obviously hand hammered and the end of the twisted wrap wire appears to have snapped off making it a little shorter than normal.
