Description:Nice 3in Type II Hotchkiss shell with gorgeous "early battlefield pick-up" iron. Unfortunately, somebody cut the lead sabot off (you can still see little cut marks). They probably wanted to salvage the lead, but you can now see the construction of how the nose section fit into the base cup.
