Description:A very neat artillery round I got from the digger (diver) who came up with it decades ago. He hosed it off and coated with the thick varnish used back in the day. So this is almost assuredly a CS-made round unless it was captured and somehow made it's way to Selma. The caliber would allow it to be shot from a 32-lber smoothbore, a 32-lber rifled gun, or a 100-lber (6.4-inch) Brooke or Parrott rifle. The iron looks to be quite solid other than some flaking by the bolt's nut. The diver marked the shell with the provenance showing it found in 11/2/1975. A really nice find.
