Looks like some promoters are going for it and trying to run their shows. Who knows if enough people will show up to make them worthwhile. I hope it works out but have concerns as we all do. Still figuring out which ones we'll attend this summer, but it looks like we'll try and do them. Stay tuned as the situation is fluid.

We continue to experience intermittent delivery of order emails, so it's wise to email us directly at and to be sure your order gets through. Thank you for your patience while we try to address this.

Description:This is a very nice uncleaned Read-Parrott on consignment from Pete George of the Dickey and George artillery book fame. This shell is an example of the collaboration between Robert Parrott and John Read using the sabot technology patented by John Read. This shell is uncleaned but clearly shows good iron and would clean up well if someone were inclined to do so. It has a nice clean wood fuse hole that I presume was cleaned out after the shell was disarmed via the side. This is a nice example. The labels on it give Pete's shell history.

Shell is inert, uncleaned and coated.
