Description:The 12 pounder side loader shell is fairly common when fitted with the lead and iron side plugs. Unlike those, this shell was fitted with the brass side plug using two spanner holes to allow the iron balls to be loaded. This style of side loader is very infrequently seen.

The iron is very good although it is painted black by the original owner with white lettering on it with his collection number and some shell details. I can remove that if desired. The side plug is in great shape with nice patina. The standard CS copper time fuse adapter has a nice bright green patina. All in all a great display piece.

Side loaders are very desirable and this style if not often seen!

Shell is inert, cleaned and coated.
