Iron cannister-shot in encrustation with stone base and plaque, ex-HMS Colossus (1798). 533 grams total, the shot about 1-1/2" in diameter. An interesting shipwreck artifact, conserved small cannonball in matrix with bits of shell visible and affixed to rocky substrate, with a letter from the salvor stating that he found the artifact "between the two main sections in a place called the galley area," with a brass plaque making this a wonderful display item. From HMS Colossus (1798), with original (hand written) letter from the salvor who recovered it (Todd Stevens).
