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 cwbullet@hotmail.com and carl@sitherwood.com to be sure your order gets through. Thank you for your patience while we try to address this.

Description:This rarity 6 shell is mostly found in Petersburg and Atlanta. A few have been found at a couple other places. They are the beginning of the very desirable "big Schenkls" that everyone wants much like Hotchkiss over the 30-lber (4.2") size.

This shell has very solid iron and could clean up a bit more. Plus the polyurethane is thick and shiny. The oversized knob on the tail and the saw tooth ratchets are crisp. If I get around to cleaning it the price will go up as it will be a nicer example. While it displays nicely as is this would be a good easy project for someone. The fuse is the army dated example. There are some bangs on the fuse and a small drill hole for disarming down the center but the date is intact and clear.

These shells when extremely nice sell upwards of $800 or more. This is a chance to get a pretty good one for much less.

The shell is disarmed, somewhat cleaned and is coated.
