A00957 - Rarity 9 200pdr Incendiary Parrott Shell
Sorry, this item is no longer available!



Item Number: A00957

Item Title: Rarity 9 200pdr Incendiary Parrott Shell

Price: $325

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US

Type: 8in Parrott

Size:

Sabot: Missing

Fuse: Missing

Book: Jack Bell Page 316

Location Recovered: Charleston area

Description:This is the first of these I have ever had either in my collection or to sell. We have had numerous 200pdr Parrotts, but none with the hex head bolt in the base which Jack Bell writes marks it as an incendiary shell (see page 316 in his book).

This one is missing its sabot and the iron surface is inconsistent -- smooth in areas and coarse in others. I ran a magnet over it and it doesn't have filler as far as I can tell.

This is a heavy shell, and I am hoping to be able to get it under the 150lb UPS Ground cutoff, but not sure if I can. In any event, shipping will be pricey and a pain in the neck. Would be great if we could arrange to transfer it without having to ship.
