Original Revolutionary War Artillery Worm for Cannon


Product Description

This is another rare piece being offered, it is a Revolutionary War Iron Artillery Worm. It is a double row of 3 twists approximately 7” long by 3” wide, with a tang with hole for attaching to a pole.

An Artillery Worm was a claw-like tool that was used to extract a faulty round if needed. It could also be used to remove fragments of the powder bag after firing, although this was not part of the routine drill.

The hand-forged iron is clean with only a couple spots of surface rust. This would have been the proper size for a 4-pounder cannon or larger. Occasionally, Civil War Artillery Worms show up, but Revolutionary War examples are almost non-existent. This is a very rare piece and a must have for any artillery collection.
