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 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:Brass bushing from a large naval shell fired at Fort Fisher. As can be seen in the 3rd picture, the interior threads are perfect and a fuse screws right into it. It also has the letters "NY" stamped in the bottom and part of a third letter which is almost certainly a "B" These stand for "Navy Yard Boston" from whence the shell originated. These desirable letters show up on only a small percentage of the fuse bushings and they are later in the war in my experience.
