A00385 - Nice 24 Pounder Bormann Common Shell

Item Number: F00385

Item Title: Nice 24 Pounder Bormann Common Shell

Price: $190

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US

Type: Cannon Ball

Size: 24 Pounder (5.82 Inch Caliber)

Sabot: Wood Cup (Missing)

Fuse: Bormann Time Fuse


Location Recovered: Vicksburg, MS

Description:Nice example of a Bormann shell half showing the Bormann fuse and the iron underplug. A neat aspect of this shell is it still has the powder in the powder cavity. The shell was cut without being flushed out. There is some powder staining on the cut surface that I'll buff off before shipping so it is nice and clean and shiny.

Note the powder is a little hard but if touched will flake off. If desired I can spray it with polyurethane to harden it more or I can remove it and ship with a clean powder cavity. If shipped with the powder in the cavity I'll do my best to secure it but can't guarantee it won't come loose during shipping.

Shell half is cleaned and coated.
