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.

Item Number: M00628

Item Title: Navy vent prick

Price: $75

Location Recovered:

Description:Vent prick used by the Union navy. This has a padded end to protect the sailor's palm when pushing it into the cannon vent hole. I have seen these with pointed tips as well as this type of tip. I am not sure why this tip type was made the way it is.

These have been recovered from the wreck of the USS Cairo.
