AR16 - Hotchkiss Shell Base Plugs - These 2 plugs were found with around 30 other at the front of the Union line on the Resaca Georgia battlefield. Originally we thought that they had to be from exploded Confederate shells being found in the Union line, but later we discovered that there had been a munitions wagon explosion in the late 1800's or early 1900's which was carrying Union Hotchkiss shells. These are what we thought were fuse adapters but are actually plugs that went into the bottom of the Hotchkiss shell. They date after the Civil War but prior to World War I. Still a neat item that caused a lot of head scratching for a while. $20.00 each
