Description:First let me apologize there are no images on this shell. Due to the weather I haven't unpacked from the Franklin Show and it will be a couple days before I can get to it. I will send images if requested unless it sells. So for now the picture of the cannon in the snow falling at Kennesaw Mountain Military Park will have to suffice. :)

This is a very nice example of a 20-lber Parrott shell. A very effective weapon it had good range, was mobile and did the job well. They were used in all parts of the war in good numbers. The iron on this one is good but is uncleaned and a little TLC would make it pretty nice.

Shell is somewhat cleaned, uncoated and disarmed.
