Description:This type of Read is uncommon and highly desirable. They come out of the Deep South and are distinguished mainly by a very high copper band sabot. They also have thin bourrelets, thinner than the Virginia Reads and both are the same width unlike the Camden Reads.

This is an extremely desirable and hard-to-find shell. I have had it in my personal collection for several years, but I have two of them and so am going to let this one go.
