Description:This is a nice example of the Parrott shell cut in half to show the powder cavity, sabot construction, fuse hole and the fusing. The fuse clearly shows the slider but the cap is missing. This percussion fuse it the one piece type that has the slider internal to the body and a small cap on top. The cap was lost in battle. There are a few small air bubbles to be seen in the bottom of the shell around the sabot. This is because the shell is cast fuse hole down and any air bubbles rise to the sabot end before the iron hardens. This shell has a nice brass sabot.

Shell half is inert, cleaned and coated.
