This is a fine looking and rare Southern projectile. It is an original Confederate projectile for the 3.3 inch Confederate rifled cannon. This is the pattern illustrated on page #268 of the 1993 edition of the Dickey & George artillery book. This projectile was designed to explode rather to just slam into the target. They used a paper time fuze that inserted to the copper Read style cannon fuse holder at the top of the shell. This one is in fine shape and has the entire copper sabot present on the base of the projectile. The iron on these shells were usually constructed of lesser quality iron because of the lack of quality y the deep south producers. The sabot is on the base of the shell is the tall tapering ring which is made of copper. In the book they list these 3.3 Read long sabot shell as being a rarity of 10 out of 10 which is about as scarce as they come. This is a great looking original Confederate 3.3. inch rifled cannon shell.
