SECTIONED C.S. 3” READ SIDE-LOADER CASE-SHOT -- CHANCELLORSVILLE

$275.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1052-57B

Offered here is a very nice half of an excavated Confederate artillery shell; sectioned to show the contents.  This is an iron, 3” artillery shell that was intended to be fired from a 10-pounder Parrott rifle or 3” Ordnance rifle.

This shell is filled with iron case-shot balls held in place with a yellow sulphur matrix. All internal components are clearly visible: iron sabot, case-shot, matrix, Confederate time fuse adaptor, and lead side loading plug.

This item was excavated so the exterior iron surface is pitted. What little remains of the lead side plug shows heavy ground action and loss. Sabot, fuse, and contents are in good shape.

Recovered from Chancellorsville, VA.

This shell is an excellent display piece or educational tool, as well as an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War artillery or general relic collection. [jet] [ph:L]
