$675.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1054-1057

This is a fired example of a CS Read pattern shell. Shell is in dug condition, with significant chipping to the iron around the base on one side. The iron on the nose exhibits light surface pitting. The lathe lug at the nose has also chipped off. The copper fuse adapter is in place, but has some damage. The brass sabot is intact, and shows rifling marks very well. Overall a decent Confederate shell in fired condition, illustrating the problems the Confederates had with their iron castings. Recovered from the Gettysburg battlefield. The shell has been deactivated, cleaned, and coated. [jet]
