Twelve-pounder "stand of grapeshot" or canister shot, Civil War era. 14.4 lbs, 6" tall, 4-1/2" diameter. This type of projectile is rarely found intact, as when fired (mainly as anti-personnel) the components scattered. It consists of nine small balls held in place by two plates connected by a central bolt and secured by two iron rings. Excavated condition (land site, not salt water), with pitted surfaces judiciously cleaned and preserved, the iron stable and solid. With photo-certificate, pedigreed to the Francis Bannerman collection (New York).
