A00913 - Back on the market! 3.4in Star Cavity Smooth Read Shell
Sorry, this item is no longer available!

Item Number: A00913

Item Title: Back on the market! 3.4in Star Cavity Smooth Read Shell

Price: $595

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: CS

Type: Star Cavity Smooth Read shell

Size: 3.4in

Sabot: Copper ring

Fuse: Copper time fuse adapter

Book: Dickey and George (1993 Edition) Page 271

Location Recovered: High Bridge, VA

Description:Rarity 8 and very desirable shell. The 3.4in ones are even rarer in my experience than the 3.5in ones, but what makes them special is the High Bridge provenance. The story of the boys who found this cache is one of the great relic hunting finds. This shell came from one of the boys, grown to adulthood, by way of a forum member, and so the provenance is solid.

Shell has some pitting that all these High Bridge shells have because the boys' mother would not let them bring the shells indoors. Still, one side displays very well while the other is a little pitted. This shell has been cleaned but not coated. A correct fuse adapter has been added that screws in and out nicely.
