Authentic Civil War Artillery Shells & Cannonballs

Click on an image to enlarge

This is a very nice original Civil War era 3 inch Absterdam shell. This is an interesting artillery shell in that it was patented in February of 1864 but never made it into service before the end of the Civil War. This one has the complete brass sabot present and it has the mostly visible stamp of "ABSTERDAM'S PATENT FEB. 23 1864". The shell is a nice non-excavated shell and you can even still see the traces of the arsenal lathe marks on the brass sabot of the shell. You can also see some of the original arsenal orange pain remaining on the iron. The fuse hole at the top has the remnants of what looks like a fuse. This shell would be a great addition to any collection.
