This is an excavated example of a CS Read-Parrott pattern shell. Shell comes from an old collection and was dug long ago, so the iron is in very good condition. The iron is dark and smooth with only minor surface pitting. The shell stands 9” tall. The lathe lug at the nose has chipped off. The copper fuse adapter is in place and remains in excellent shape. The iron sabot is intact with a couple of minor bends.

Upper body of the shell is lightly stamped with “Q” and “S&P”. These marks were painted over in white by the previous owner. That collector also attached a paper label to the bottom of the piece.  The “S&P” stands for the firm of Thomas Sampson & James Pae who operated a foundry at the corner of Byrd & 5th Streets in Richmond, Virginia.

A decent Confederate shell featuring rare marks from the Richmond maker.   [jet]
