A00216 - Parrott 10-lber Percussion Half

Item Number: F00216

Item Title: Parrott 10-lber Percussion Half

Price: $160

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US

Type: Parrott

Size: 10 Pounder (2.9 Inch Caliber)

Sabot: Brass Ring

Fuse: Parrott Percussion

Book: Dickey and George (1993 Edition) Page 226

Location Recovered: Unknown

Description:Nice Parrott half just as cut showing the round's construction. Note the very evident nipple with the percussion cap still on it in the set back position. It appears to me the fuse cap is driven down onto the slider by impact. Fuse threads are very evident. Note the fired brass sabot. Also the iron is very good on this example unlike many that get cut. Very nice display.
