Click on an image to enlarge
This is a nice excavated version of one of the most important artillery projectiles of the Civil War. It is the 3 inch shell for the Parrott patent rifle cannon. This one is the version that has the brass sabot at the base of the shell. This was designed to take the rifling of the cannon barrel and make the shell fly more accurately. This one has the entire brass sabot present and as you can see it is in superb condition. At the top of the shell it has a fine amount of the original zinc Parrott style percussion fuse intact. You don't encounter as many of these percussion fuses shells compared to the usual paper fused versions. This shell has been drilled out and has had the powder removed to make it safe for display. All of our artillery shells have been disarmed this was to make the safe for your collection. If you wanted a nice displaying percussion version of the famous 3 inch Parrott shell been this one is for you.
