Our next show will not be Gettysburg, but instead will be the Richmond Show the weekend of November 17-18. We are sorry not to be able to make G-burg, but really looking forward to Richmond.

We still have some electronic orders that do not get delivered via the website. We think it is a Captcha issue so please check that part of the inquiry form. If you do not receive a response from us quickly on an inquiry about an item we have listed, however, please email us.

A00191 - Spectacular Half Section of a 3in Hotchkiss Case Shot Shell
Sorry, this item is no longer available!

Item Number: F00191

Item Title: Spectacular Half Section of a 3in Hotchkiss Case Shot Shell

Price: $235

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US

Type: Hotchkiss case shot shell

Size: 3in




Location Recovered: Spanish Fort, AL

Description:This one has it all down to the "cut nail" in the lower powder cavity that originally held the sand casting core in place. It also has small, misshapen lead shot which is unusual. The fuse adapter and connector through the pusher plate (used to propel the shot in one direction out the nose of the shell) shows the system perfectly. This was an advanced design that set the standard for the future.
