Please Note: The American Digger Magazine inadvertently sent out show advertising saying that their Chattanooga Show was this coming weekend, July 20th. That is the weekend of the North South Trader's Show in Doswell, VA. The American Digger show is the following weekend, July 27th. BulletAndShell.com will be at both! Hope to see you there.

Description:This is a really rare item. As far as I know they are only found at Selma. These are the ignition devices for the big guns. This tube fit down the vent hole and the pan at the top contained flash powder. It is my understanding this was then ignited with a hammer igniter. I really can't find anything that gives detail. Condition is very good with great patina.
