This early mortar shell was once housed in the Fort Ticonderoga Museum collection. It is an excavated 10” mortar shell in relic condition. The iron body of the shell is in solid condition with heavier pitting on one side. The shell is approximately 9.5” in diameter. There is a tapered fuse hole and two “ears” remaining. There are light remnants of some descriptive text in white paint still visible.

This hollow shell pattern is rarely encountered compared to the solid shot projectiles of this period. This style with the “ears” is early and could be from the French & Indian or Revolutionary War eras.   [jet] [ph:jet}
