Antique Vintage Civil War Era Cast Iron Cannonball 6 Pounds No Reserve:
Hello. I found this displayed on a shelf during an estate buy from a deceased gentleman.I can only assume that it is a Civil War era cannonball. Pictures #1 and # 2 were taken with the flash off and show a seam in the ball. Pics #3-#5 are with the flash on of different portions. The ball weighs in at 5 lbs 15oz so I guess we can call it a 6 pounder. The diameter across is approx 3.5" + or -. Unfortunately due to the circumstances I was not able to get any history or provenance regarding it but was just told it was aquired many years earlier.
Thanks for looking. Note on shipping. I will ship this 6 pound plus box for ACTUAL shipping. The three options to choose from will be the slower Parcel Post,Priority Mail or the Priority Medium Flat Rate box for $12.35 anywhere in the US. A lot will depend on your location to determine which may be best for you. Take care.
