Please Note: The American Digger Magazine inadvertently sent out show advertising saying that their Chattanooga Show was this coming weekend, July 20th. That is the weekend of the North South Trader's Show in Doswell, VA. The American Digger show is the following weekend, July 27th. BulletAndShell.com will be at both! Hope to see you there.

A01691 - 6pdr spherical shell -- possibly a polygonal cavity
Sorry, this item is no longer available!



Item Number: A01691

Item Title: 6pdr spherical shell -- possibly a polygonal cavity

Price: $495

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: CS

Type: Spherical shell

Size: 6pdr

Sabot:

Fuse:

Book:

Location Recovered: Spanish Fort, AL

Description:Desirable and uncommon 6pdr spherical shell. The only known unit on the field at Spanish Fort with 6pdrs was Lumsden's Battery (who complained about their size inferiority). This one is filled with concretion but at one place I think I can feel the line of weakness between polygonal sections. Rare 6pdr polygonals are absolutely recovered there and odds are very good this is one of them.
