Item Code: R21786

English-made, Confederate-imported 3-inch Armstrong shell. This rare studded Armstrong shell is an unfired example of the longer three-studded variety, featuring triple rows of three brass studs. Threaded fuse hole (no fuse) and a makers stamp just below the nose. This specimen was de-accessed by the Tennessee NPS circa 1975. Several of this type of shell were excavated in Amelia County, Virginia, along the retreat route. Very good condition with a pleasing dark patina overall.  [jet]
