Seller's Description

Canister, shot.............REDUCED..............



Canister, shot



This auction is for a Canister (Shot Canister). It is about 7 1/2” long, 2 1/8” in diameter at the base and weighs ~5 lb. 2 oz . The shot in in this canister is ~1/4” in diameter. The origin and age of this canister are unknown.

Canister


A canister round is a thin-walled metal cylinder packed with musket balls, or large lead or iron balls, and sawdust. Generally a wooden block or "sabot" was attached to the bottom of the canister. The sabot helped to keep the round in the middle of the bore and also prevented the exploding gases from shooting out around the sides of the canister. Attached to the bottom of the sabot was the cloth bag that contained the powder for the round. When the powder was set off, the force of the explosion would disrupt the can and the shot would spray out of the muzzle much like a shotgun.

INFORMATION POSTED AT THE END

OF THE AUCTION. IT MAY SAVE TIME FOR BOTH OF US.


BEFORE YOU ASK WHAT THE RESERVE IS, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING…


RESERVE AUCTION


We do not disclose the Reserve on our “RESERVE AUCTIONS” because doing so defeats the purpose of the auction. Disclosing makes it a “Sale”, not an auction, much like a classified listing. Most of the firearms we offer at auction are on consignment with us from one of our clients. Our commitment to our clients is to obtain the highest fair market price possible for their firearms. Thus, we prefer the Reserve Auction and the “HAGGLE” feature offered by Auction Arms. About 50% of our sales are completed via the Haggle. In a Reserve auction if the high bidder does not reach the reserve by the end the auction the high bidder or the seller may institute what Auction Arms calls a Haggle a one-on-one exchange between buyer and seller to try and come to a mutual agreement on a price. If you are not familiar with the Haggle process, click on Auction Arms “Help & Info” for complete details. For those items that are not on consignment we usually offer a convenient “Buy-It-Now” price.
