Description:This is a nice condition 6.4in Harding shell It has excellent rifling on the half of the copper sabot that remains so it will display really well. These are only found at Long Island, SC (next to Folly Island) in the Charleston defenses.

Dug by the late Greg Craven and run through electrolysis by another person I consider to be the best in the field. It was in electrolysis for close to two years and has been out of electrolysis and stable for close to another two years. A very nice price for this desirable shell.
