SCARCE CONFEDERATE 6-POUNDER CANNON BALL WITH BORMAN FUSE FROM GETTYSBURG

$895.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 766-1579

This is a nice, excavated 6-pounder with Borman fuse.  Iron body exhibits pitting typical of a “dug” item. Fuse is “fired” and slightly blown out. Drilled on the bottom; a clean ball.

Fired from Lantham’s Battery of Branch’s North Carolina Artillery. Captain Alexander Lantham had the only 6-pounder gun at Gettysburg and exchanged fire with Smith’s Battery atop Devil’s Den. This item was recovered near the Triangular Field below Devil’s Den long ago by a local collector. This was sold previously by the Horse Soldier in the 1990s.

A great example of a scarce Gettysburg cannon ball.  [jet] [ph:L]
