Item Number: A01511

Item Title: Rare Confederate 24pdr sideloader

Price: $1100

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: CS

Type: Spherical case shot shell

Size: 24pdr




Location Recovered: Nansemond River at Suffolk, Virginia

Description:24pdr sideloaders are rarity 9 projectiles per Dickey & George. This one was recovered from a Confederate fortification on the Nansemond River area in Suffolk, Virginia. The copper fuse adapter unscrews to reveal the case shot inside. The sideplug patina was lost in electrolysis, but I was able to get a chalky surface back on it (as shown in the last photo) that will only get better with time.
