Click on an image to enlarge

Here is a nice original excavated section of Civil War cannon shell. This is the base of the nose section of iron that is from 3 inch version of the Hotchkiss pattern cannon shells. Because of the designs of the shells they often were thrown off of the shell when they were blown out of the end of the cannon barrel. This piece was found in the 1960's in the area of the Battle of Chancellorsville, Virginia area. Chancellorsville was a battle between the Confederate forces of Robert E. Lee and Union General Joseph Hooker on April 30th until May 6, 1863. The iron section is accompanied by a section of the lead sabot from the waist of the shell. You can still see the clear lands and grooves where it was fired out of the cannon barrel. The last image shows this piece beside a more intact version of the Hotchkiss shell. The price quoted is for the exact original excavated Hotchkiss cannon shell piece and the lead sabot section that you see pictured.
