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.

Description:Really hard to find R stamped, 1862 dated USN Watercap fuse adapter. Threads are perfect and centercap unscrews. The R is for "reloaded" which was done after cruises out of fear the paper time fuse inside would have been exposed to moisture and no good. After yet another voyage, these were subsequently unscrewed from the shells in port and tossed aside at the base. So a fuse adapter that started life in 1862 during the Civil War got reused for a few decades but never fired. Hence the perfect condition.
