This is a football-shaped piece of hollow cast iron with disk-shaped percussion contact fuze, and wooden tail with varnished paper fletching. The body of the grenade itself is empty, and has a lightly oxidized gray patina with mottled spots of ruddy-brown pitting and freckling throughout, although there is a noticeably brighter section on the back side. The tail has most of the original brown milk paint finish remaining, and one of the varnished paper vanes is missing. The bomb is mounted to an oval plaque for wall display most likely done at Bannermans, and is a great, and scarce piece of Civil War militaria.
