Description:Here is a great display item! This is a 12 pounder wood fused ball sitting on a nice reproduction sabot. I have people ask for these sabots periodically. I just got this shell at the Franklin Show a couple weeks ago and it had the sabot under the ball. It looks so good I decided to keep them together.

The ball is in great shape and could be non-battlefield. It has a faint mold seam but you can clearly see the sprue marks on the side and bottom where they should be. Really a great condition ball. The inside of the ball is very clean with no dirt or concretion. As the powder cavity was not coated there is some surface rust but that is all which is why I think it may be non-battlefield. It is not polygonal cavity. If someone had a wooden fuse adapter to insert in the fuse hole this would be a super display.

Shell is inert, cleaned and coated.
