We’re going to take a brief hiatus from the relic world, but we will be back soon. Apologies in advance if our replies are delayed but there’s no paid time off (or healthcare benefits) at BulletandShell. The East coast syndicate running it is a bunch of taskmasters so we have to sneak off whenever we can.

Description:This is a nice 12pdr cannon ball with the desireable and distinctive casting vent mark that makes these known as a "belly button" ball. There is another mark a quarter of the way down that could be a broad arrow stamp, but it is unclear. 3 different dealers looked at this at Mansfield and each thought it was probably a borad arrow mark, but none could be positive. If the marking was crisp, this cannon ball would sell for $800+
