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:While not rare these are not easy shells to get. Jack Bell has them at rarity 7. They are mostly found at Vicksburg and the James River area. This one has very specific provenance that we don't often get on a shell. it is from the south end of the Howett Line near the Appomattox River in the Bermuda Hundred area. For more info see:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howlett_Line

The iron on this has light pitting over the shell as is often seen from this area. The iron is very solid with heavy peppering all over. The fuse shows some impact marks but you can still see good portions of the markings. The relief of the ribs that prevented the paper mache sabot from slipping is very good. It has been disarmed through the base knob which allows for the most complete flushing.

This is a great shell for the money. Big Schenkl shells are hard to get and cost big bucks. This would be an economical start into the big boys.

The shell is inert, cleaned and coated.
