Original U.S. Confederate Civil War 12 Pdr 4.52” Case Shot Cutaway Cannon Ball with Borman Fuze- On Display Base
Original Item: Only One Available. Very well done cutaway display made from a Confederate cannonball. This is a 4.52” Shell used with the twelve pound Napoleon Artillery Piece. The shell is fitted with a two-slot Borman Fuze, which is still present, and still filled with the original shot!
This item was excavated, so the iron surface is pitted from being underground for well over a century. Lead/zinc fuse band shows ground action on exterior, so no numbers remain visible. However, the embedded powder train within the band remains evident in the cross-section. The hole that lead to the inner charge from the fuse is also visible on this specimen.
This shell is a rare find and will be an excellent display piece or educational tool, as well as an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War artillery or general relic collection.
