Will be listing a few things picked up at the Baltimore Show.

We were offered a 15" Army spherical shell. This is the type that took the wood fuse adapter and most if not all known came from surplus stocks at Bannermans. If anyones is interested in it for $1500, we'll get it and figure out how to meet up to deliver it. Absent a confirmed buyer we probably won't handle it as the hernia repair bills will far outweigh the few dollar profit we might make!

If you send an eMail on something and don't receive a prompt response, please follow up with a call or text to make sure we got your note or I reply didn't go into your spam folder. We get lots of eMails no problem from Nigerian Princes wanting to share their wealth with us, but for some reason legitimate eMails are occasionally getting routed to the virtual wasteland.

Description:This is a common shell that was thought to possibly be a polygonal cavity but it turned out not to be. But it is still a great example of a frequently used shell in siege and naval operations as the 24-lber gun was too big and heavy to haul around. This shell is very clean with a nice cut, clean and coated powder cavity with the shell exterior also cleaned and coated.

NOTE: The Bormann fuse is shown in the powder cavity to only to show the size of the shell. It is not part of the offering.
