Confederate 12 Pounder "Bormann Fuzed" Half Case-Shot Shell


Item: Confederate 12 Pounder Bormann Fuzed Half Case-Shot Shell
Construction: Cast iron with solder Bormann time fuze, brass under-plug, lead shot in an asphalt matrix.
Approximate size: Weight: 4.8 pounds. Diameter: 4.5 inches.  
Condition: Very good, excavated, with no repairs. The interior shows cross-sections of about 20 lead balls as well as the cross-sections of the fuze and brass under-plug. The cut at the shell's equator appears even and smooth, and the exterior iron is pitted. Still visible on the Confederate Bormann fuze are several hash-marks as well as the number "4" and part of the number "5", representing "seconds", are still visible. This half case-shot is inactive.
Recovered: Unknown
Comments: A complete example of a Confederate 12 pounder Bormann fuzed case-shot can be found in "Field Artillery Ordnance", by Jack W. Melton, Jr., and Lawrence E. Pawl on page 55. This artillery half case-shot will not only be an excellent educational tool but will also be a nice addition to any excavated Civil War artillery or general relic collection.
