A00693 - Rarity 9+ 20pdr Parrott prototype shell
Sorry, this item is no longer available!

Item Number: A00693

Item Title: Rarity 9+ 20pdr Parrott prototype shell

Price: $595

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US

Type: Parrott shell

Size: 20pdr

Sabot: Brass band

Fuse: Parrott white metal

Book: Dickey and George (1993 Edition) Page 227

Location Recovered: Fredericksburg

Description:Rare Parrott shell type in top drawer condition. The top edge of the sabot looks like a straight line, but after exchanging messages with Pete George, the only way to see fully the corrugation or scalloping shown in the book is to pry back the sabot. There is not another type in the book this could be and boy it is a nice one. I may be pricing this too low for the rarity because I don't think another will come available anytime soon. Most I have seen, and that is not many, are missing their sabots. I think this is the only one I have seen that has been fired and retain its sabot with nice rifling. A connoisseur's shell priced for a regular Joe!
