Click on an image to enlarge
This is a gorgeous piece of Civil War artillery. It is a excavated rifled cannon projectile for the rifled 12# Blakely pattern cannon. This is the style listed on page #115 of the 1993 edition of the artillery shell book by Dickey & George. This is one of the solid shot projectiles which were designed to batter down defenses rather than exploding and raining down shrapnel. This is a British pattern projectile that was utilized by the Confederacy. Not many of them made it through the blockade's but there have been a few battlefield recoveries. This one is in beautiful excavated condition. On the top of the bolt you can see the traces of the line indentation from manufacturing. At the base it has the entire lead sabot still present and in beautiful condition. This one is as nice as you will ever encounter and any collector or museum would appreciate having it.
