Offered here is a very nice half of an excavated Union 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 lead case-shot balls held in place with a black tar matrix. All internal components are clearly visible: lead sabot, case-shot, iron “push” plate, matrix, base cup, and threaded hole where fuse once was.

This item was excavated so the exterior iron surface is pitted. Sabot and contents are in good shape.

Recovered from Richmond, 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]
