Click on an image to enlarge
Here is an amazing excavated piece of artillery history. This is the piece that is known to collectors as a Cannon "worm". This was the tool that would have been used to remove a cannon shell from the cannon barrel in the event of a misfire. It was basically a very large corkscrew to catch on to the end of the artillery projectile in the barrel. Originally it would have had a long wooden shaft and you can see the small section of the wood. This one is the correct size to have been used with a small bore diameter cannon. This style was often used on the small, more portable cannon used in the later 1700's and early 1800's. It could be used in an 1812 era display or on up into the early Federal period. The piece measures 43 inches in overall length with the worm portion itself measuring 8-1/2 inches in length. It has a wonderful untouched look all over. This is a great piece!
