A rare Confederate 3.67-inch hollow shell for 6-pounder gun. Nice thin-walled hollow round ball with open fuse hole. Fuse hole measures approximately 0.775 and the shell walls are about 0.25 thick at the opening. Original half-inch wide tin straps hold the ball to the original wood sabot. The turned-wood sabot features a lathe “dimple” centered on the bottom and a single 0.25-inch wide groove around the base (used to tie powder bag to sabot). Two minor chips in the base of the sabot do not detract. Attractive dark patina to wood and shell. Very minor surface rust but in overall exceptional condition. A very displayable piece that be a great addition to any collection.  [jet]
