Looks like some promoters are going for it and trying to run their shows. Who knows if enough people will show up to make them worthwhile. I hope it works out but have concerns as we all do. Still figuring out which ones we'll attend this summer, but it looks like we'll try and do them. Stay tuned as the situation is fluid.

Description:We don't get many rifled half shells of the Confederate origin. I put the other half in my collection. it has a very nice smooth cut job. I did clean out the powder cavity and give it a light coat of polyurethane to darken it and contrast the shell body with the interior. Above I say that the sabot is missing but in reality there is a very small piece still present and fortunately is was at the point of cut show from the display side you can see the sabot cast into the shell on the right side. The iron is good and hard on the outside but heavily peppered though no big pits. This is a nice display piece.

Shell is inert, cleaned and coated.
