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.

Description: This is an excavated Read shell with even pitting. This one is missing the screw in fuse which could be tapped and replaced if desired. This one wasn't fired but does have a dent on the copper sabot. That may be the reason it was discarded. There is a very nice lathe dimple on the base. This one has already been cleaned and coated.

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.

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.
