Excavated late-war Confederate artillery shell for 3-inch ordnance rifles. Round nose with hole for drive-in fuse. Single 1-inch wide bourrelet near top of shell and a copper sabot that served as the second bourrelet (bearing surface). The bourrelet and the sabot were machined on a lathe to the proper tolerance required. Two saw cuts in the sabot aided in the expansion of the sabot into the grooves of the gun. Slightly rounded base with a lathe “dimple” in the center. This specimen is in exceptional unfired condition. Recovered near Petersburg, Virginia.
