Description:The James shell is one of the most distinctive and desirable artillery projectiles of the American Civil War. This one is in exquisite condition. The anvil cap fits like a glove and unscrews perfectly. The slider slides out.

Unfortunately, I got drawn into a bidding war on this one. I wasn't too happy about that, and whoever ends up with this will have to pay the price of a dealer trying to end around me. But you can take comfort in the fact that you will have a beautiful shell that will be the envy of all other collectors, and it will be a very long time before one this nice again becomes available.
