British eighteen-pounder stand of grapeshot, early 1800s. 7980 grams, 7-1/2" tall, 5" diameter. This type of projectile is seldom found intact, as when fired (mainly as anti-personnel) the components scattered. It consists of nine small balls (three per layer with separators in between) held in place by two plates connected by a central bolt, this one deeply marked with British broad arrow markings and "18" on top and bottom, well conserved. With photo-certificate.
