Authentic Excavated Confederate 3 Inch Mullane Shell With Bolt & Sabot
Click on an image to enlarge

This is a great looking Confederate artillery shell. This is the style that is known to collectors as the Confederate "Mullane" pattern shell. The body of the shell looks very similar to the Confederate Read shells but the base is completely different. The base had the copper sabot intact with the distinctive rifling from the Confederate cannon. The sabot of these Mullane shells are held on by an iron bolt and this one still has been replaced and now displays beautifully. As you can imagine with this design the sabot and bolt almost always flew off in flight but this one is nice. At the top of the shell it has the fuse hole that would have had the wooden fuse holder at one time but is missing as usual with these. You can also see the very clear mold seam where the shell body was cast in a 2 piece mold. The iron of the shell has been nicely cleaned and coated for display and preservation. This is a great looking Confederate cannon shell that is a scarce style.
