    What are cannon balls worth

    Just wondering what cannon balls are worth? I found three of them ,a 4 pounder ,a 6 pounder and a large one that had a wood plug in it .I had to take the powder out . Some one asked me the other day what they are worth and I said that I have no clue. The two smaller ones are solid . They all came from a 1793 battle site in Germany . It was great I had the whole battle field to detect! Best time in my life. Thanks for the information in advance.

    They're worth what someone will pay for them.

    Seriously.

    They could be worth something to a museum or a collector or they could be your newest paperweights.

    Re: What are cannon balls worth

    I have cannonballs from the American Civil War that were excavated. A 6 pounder- solid shot will run around $200 6 pounder-case shot-$400-500......12 pounder,depending on whether solid shot or case shot will vary. I would say that with a fuse it would fetch around $500-$700 but without a fuse (solid shot) it will drop a couple hundred in value because collectors like to look at the fuses and without one, it is just a solid piece of iron. As for 4 pounders, they had really become obsolete and hence they did not really use 4 pounders during the American Civil War but a friend bought one from a collector last year, a solid shot, for $175.....
