    An 1861 Ketchum grenade used by Federal troops in the American Civil War. They can't have been very efficient.

    Correct. The sensitivity of the impact fuse was a problem, so many of them ended up being thrown back.

    Can't rep you right now, can someone else take care of it?

    Nobody interested at guessing?

    It is a torpedo, but not a Whitehead one.

    Its been a month and no one seems interested in guessing the answer. I'll give it a little longer, then give the answer and open it up to whoever wants to post.

    No interest in guessing after 1 month.

    The picture is of the Howell Torpedo, designed by LT Commander Howell of US Navy in the 19th century. It used a flywheel for propulsion. The performance of the Whitehead torpedo eventually surpassed it and only 50 or so were made. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howell_torpedo

    Qnyone who wants to post can.
