Z1360     Early Pattern Zinc Schenkl Combination Fuse

Description: Nice early pattern Schenkl fuse from Antietam. This one still has the brass latch clip on top. These are never in great condition when you dig them. There are no visible numbers on top.

Measures: 3" in length.

Recovered: Sharpsburg, Maryland. Hauser Farm (Hauser's Ridge Area)

Price: $75.00

Z1354     Federal 3" Dyer Shell Nose

Description: Here is an excavated Dyer nose recovered from the river here in town. This particular piece was fired by Pleasanton's men (positioned at Ferry Hill) upstream from the Ford. There were a lot of shells recovered from this area but the predominate shell was the 3" Dyer. This one has the wide opening at the bottom of fuse and was meant for a shell rather than case-shot. This one still has small river rocks stuck to the bottom.

Measures: 2.5" x 3"

Recovered: Battle of Shepherdstown, Va. September 19-20 1862 (Retreat from Antietam)

Price: $65.00

Z1352     Excavated Crossed Cannon Hat Insignia Regulation 1858

Description: Here is another complete example of crossed cannon hat insignia. This piece is slightly wavy and has a very small crack on the bottom pinnacle which could have happened during manufacturing. This piece is missing all four of the attachment loops which is common on dug examples.

Measures: 1.75" x 3.25"

Recovered: Fredericksburg, Virginia

Price: $250.00

Z1321     Excavated Crossed Cannon Hat Insignia Regulation 1858

Description: Very nice set of excavated crossed cannons. This piece is slightly wavy but displays nicely. There are no cracks or repairs and the original attachment loops are missing which is quite common on dug examples.

Measures: 1.75" x 3.25"

Recovered: Franklin, Tennessee

Price: $250.00

Z1314     Wrapped Packet of 10 Paper Time Fuses (Watervliet Arsenal)

Description: Nice packet of 10 paper fuses. The best thing about this packet is it's arsenal marking. You don't see that too often. The front of the packet reads, "10 Paper Fuses 14 Sec to an inch. Watervliet Arsenal." I have sold a few dozen of these packs over the years and this is only the second one with an actual arsenal marking.

Recovered: Surplus Stocks

Price: $195.00

Z676     Federal Zinc Parrott Time Fuse Adaptor

Description: Here is an excellent early war Parrott time fuse adaptor. This one has a pleasing patina and the threads are fairly crisp. This is the early pattern without the flange around the top. A slight mold seam can been seen on both sides. There is a small hole in the base which appears to be a mold flaw.

Measures: 1.62" in Length, Head Diameter 1.104"

Recovered: Unknown

Price: $45.00 Sale $40.00

Z675     Federal Naval Watercap Fuse "ORD. D. Anchor / 1864"

Description: Here is a very nice 1864 marked fuse for a naval shell. This one is in excellent condition and could be screwed into a shell. The top is marked "ORD. D. Anchor / 1864" and is fairly crisp. It has a nice dark brown patina and top is still shiny with the original color showing through. The interior watercap is missing on this example but the interior threads are good as well. There is just one slight nick that is shiny and is visible on the large bushing in picture number two. It isn't that noticeable but is mentioned for exactness.

Measures: 2.42" in length, Head Diameter: 1.26"

Recovered: Unknown

Price: $125.00 Sale $110.00

Z555     Brass Percussion Fuse Hulls

Description: Here are four Hotchkiss and Schenkl percussion fuses that have had the tops blown off. All of these came of an old display and they have glue on them. All of them were recovered from the Vicksburg, Mississippi area. You could still place a cleaned slider inside of these.

Recovered: Vicksburg, Mississippi

Price: $25.00 Each (Qty. Avail 2) Sale $20.00 Each
