Description:This is a very nice smooth sided Read shell recovered in the river at Selma Alabama. I bought it from the diver who found it. The iron is very good on it. Much of the thin iron sabot is still present. One cool aspect is much of the wood fuse adapter is still present in the fuse hole. This is just a great example of a deep south projectile.

Shell is inert, cleaned and coated.
