Authentic Confederate 3 Inch Smooth Sided Read Shell With Copper Fuze Intact
Click on an image to enlarge
This is a great looking Confederate artillery shell. It is an original 3 inch version of the smooth sided Confederate Read shell. They look very similar to the Union Parrott shells with a couple of major differences. At the top of the shell it has the purely Confederate copper time fuse holder that is in fine shape. This one has the complete iron sabot intact. You can clearly see the lands and grooves in the iron where it was fired out of the rifled cannon. What makes it cool is that the base of the shell chipped when it was fired which allow you to see how the sabot was attached. This is a neat thing to show your friends. On the bottom of the shell it has the large lathe dimple in the center of the iron. The shell has been nicely cleaned and coated for display and preservation. This is a great looking and purely Confederate artillery shell.
