3" 4 Lb Dug Civil War Cannon Ball From Battle Of Newtonia Missouri:
This sale is for solid iron cannon ball measuring about 3" across. Many years ago I dated a gal from Newtonia who's family property was part of the battlefield and I was allowed to search with my metal detector. I found a number of related items. Some have been misplaced over the years and some were lost in the 2011 Joplin tornado. I was able to salvage 2 cannon balls and this is one of them. I remember cleaning them but they have since formed surface rust as shown. This particular one is dented or mis-cast on one side as shown in images with the small holes looking spots being a small mis-cast and NOT holes. First ball was sold on here a cople of weeks ago so I have decided I will sell the 2nd also. Please use zoom feature to inspect before offerding. I ship only once per week when all payments from this weeks sales are received. Please contact me with any questions. 2my26
