Description:Desirable type II James shell that blew up and almost all the pieces were recovered from one hole. As is almost always the case with ground bursts, there is one section missing where the frag blew out the impact entry hole and went far away from the rest.

This one has been painstakingly reassembled from at least 12 fragments. Some of the lead sabot remains between the iron ribs. This is truly a one of a kind relic.
