These excavated Civil War artillery shell shrapnel (fragments) were recently acquired directly from the digger who recovered them from various sites associated with the Bermuda Hundred Campaign of 1864-1865. The display case includes five large pieces of shrapnel which are all listed and described on the rear of the display indicating the type of item, date, and location of recovery. A close up image of this list is included in the additional images to the left of this description. The fragments vary in size from 2-4 inches in length and 2-4 inches in width. The one inch tall bullet included in one of the additional images is to give some idea of fragment size. Four of the fragments have threads where their fuze adaptors once were. All five fragments have been cleaned and very lightly clear coated for preservation. They are displayed in a very solid wood glass top display case measuring 10-5/8(W) x 12-3/8(L) x 3-3/4(D) inches, which will be included. The glass top is hinged on one side and is secured by two clasps on the opposite end. This group of Virginia excavated artillery shell fragments will be an excellent display for any office, den, or family room, and will also be a great gift for the American history buff.
