U.S. 4.52” 12-POUNDER CANISTER ROUND IN WONDERFUL CONDITION

$3,750.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 957-05

Produced by the Federal Ordnance Department, this artillery round is referred to as a Civil War twelve-pounder canister.

In wonderful original condition. This cylindrical, field artillery round is filled with twenty-seven 1.5” iron balls, and sawdust. A thin iron plate closes the top and a thick iron plate is at the bottom and is meant to push the iron shot out like a shotgun shell. All this iron is closed in a tin cylinder with a turned wood sabot nailed onto the bottom.

Fired from the bronze “Napoleon” 12-pounder smoothbore cannon, the canister round was broken by the gun’s discharge and the projectiles spread out into a cone pattern that was very effective against enemy infantry.

Measures 8” high and 4.5” in diameter. Condition is excellent.  [jet] [ph:L]

May require additional shipping charge.  Weight 14 lbs. 3 oz.
