ART002       RARITY #10 ORIGINAL EXCAVATED CIVIL WAR WRIGHT FUSE PATTERN CANNONBALL

                                           THIS IS ONE OF THE SCARCEST VERSIONS OF THE CIVIL WAR CANNONBALLS THAT YOU CAN FIND. IT IS THE VERSION
                                           KNOWN TO COLLECTORS AS THE WRIGHT TIME FUSE. IT IS BASICALLY A BORMAN PATTERN CANNONBALL WITH A
                                           UNIQUE STYLE FUSE AT THE TOP. WRIGHT'S TIME FUSE ALLOWED FOR A LONGER BURNING TIME COMPARED TO
                                           THE STANDARD BORMAN FUSE. IT INCREASED FROM 5 TO 12 SECONDS.

                                            ON PAGE 28 OF JONES'S BOOK ON CIVIL WAR FUSES, HE TELLS OF WRIGHT'S INVENTION THAT WAS PATENTED ON
                                            DECEMBER 6TH 1864. HE ALSO STATES THAT "...ONLY A FEW FIELD RECOVERIES HAVE BEEN NOTED." IN THE 1993
                                            EDITION OF THE ARTILLERY BOOK  BY DICKEY & GEORGE THEY LIST THIS PATTERN OF CANNONBALL AS A 10 OUT
                                            OF 10 IN RARITY. THAT IS AS TOUGH AS THEY COME. THE BALL ITSELF IS IN GOOD EXCAVATED CONDITION AND HAS
                                            BEEN PROFESSIONALLY DISARMED, FOR DISPLAY AND SAFETY PURPOSES.

                                           THIS IS A GREAT PIECE FOR ANY ARTILLERY COLLECTION.
