Description:This Archer bolt is attributed to an 1862 production period as indicated by the short sabot according to Pete George in the 1993 D&G book. It has the slightly rounded nose and is one of more plentiful of these desirable projectiles. Archers often lost the sabot so ones with them are quite uncommon.

This Archer bolt is a very nice one being offered in as dug condition and not cleaned. The dirt has been washed off and a light coat of polyurethane applied. The iron is very good with only the lightest of ground action to give it a peppered look. The mold seam can be seen all the way around the shell from top to bottom on both sides, even across th the top of the nose. The bottom ring that the sabot is cast into is exposed and clearly shows the dimples to prevent the sabot from slipping. The sabot is completely intact and in place which isn't often seen. In one place the rifling can be made out. It does show the effects of slamming into the ground but displays nicely.

This projectile is inert, clean and coated.
