Civil War Artillery Shell Six Pounder Borman Fuse Reconstructed Cannon Ball
This is one of the neatest relics I've ever dug - and the only one like it I've dug in nearly 50 years of digging Vicksburg relics. It's a six-pounder (3.67") Union case shot that buried itself in the ground before exploding - so that I was able to dig the casing fragments, the musket balls inside, the Borman fuse, and the fuse under-plug all together. I glued the pieces together, leaving the top portion partially unglued so that it can be lifted away to expose the internals and the musket balls. I haven't counted the number of balls inside, but you can get a good idea from the photos. I'll pack the item carefully for shipping, but should the glued parts separate during the ball's journey, you may have to reglue some of it.
