Item Title: Read 10-lber Tredegar Shell

Price: $350

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: CS

Type: Read Shell

Size: 10 Pounder (2.9 Inch Caliber)

Sabot: Wrought Iron Ring

Fuse: CS Copper Time Adapter

Book: Dickey and George (1993 Edition) Page 247

Location Recovered: Petersburg, VA

Description:A really nice specimen of a Read projectile. The only negative on it could be that it has chipping around the base which is common with these type Reads. But the flip side of that is that it shows the effects of a design issue and displays the sabot design very well. I think it is neat and have a couple examples in my collection showing this. There is a nice big lathe dimple on the base. iron is rock hard and CS copper fuse adapter is in great shape. A real nice display piece and a great price for a rarity 7 shell.
