Description:This is a good example of the case shot Dyer projectile for the 3 Inch Ordnance rifle. This shell was cleaned in electrolysis which didn't leave the best looking exterior. So it was cut in half to nicely show the Dyer time fuse adapter and the lead case shot suspended in the yellow matrix. The iron body is good and hard. A very nice example that doesn't come up very much.

It will be going to the Chattanooga Show this weekend (7/24/2020) and likely won't last long there.

Shell is cleaned, coated and disarmed.
