Item Number: A00953

Item Title: 3in Type II Absterdam shell with patent writing on base

Price: $215

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US

Type: Type II Absterdam shell

Size: 3in

Book: Dickey and George (1993 Edition) Page 69

Description:Nice shell with the desirable patent writing stamped in the bottom "Patent, S & Co., August 17, 1862" In my experience, the vast majority of these do not have the patent writing stamped in the lead base cup. S & Co is for Singer and Company which was the manufacturer of these shells.
