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.

Description:This 10 pounder Parrott shell is super nice. The iron is very good with a nice dark natural finish. It is beautiful. The thick brass sabot the Type III type for the 10 pounder Parrott gun. The casting air vent sprue is clearly seen on the bottom with the chisel marks where it was removed. The inside of the shell clean and full of case shot. I believe the iron is preserved with WD-40 or some type of oil like substance, it is not polyurethane. A little TLC would make it a 10 out of 10.

Another nice thing about this shell is that the fuse adapter screws out. It is the longer white metal time adapter without a lip. If a different type of time adapter is desired I likely have one and can swap it out.

This shell is better than it appears in the pictures.

Shell is inert, clean and coated.
