Description:This is a nice example of the shorter case shot pattern Parrott round. Due to the added weight of the lead balls they had to make the projectile shorter to keep it from being too heavy for the Parrott rifle. The round threw its sabot a many of them did. It had the zinc time adapter which connected to the tin tube holding the charge. The edge of the powder tube can be clearly seen. It appears the shell hit some wood or something that was forced into the fuse hole breaking some pieces of the fuse off and forcing them and what looks like wood down into the shell. it is a really nice piece. The case shot balls are aligned neatly on each side of the powder tube in black matrix. Unlike many half shells this one has a good exterior that is cleaned and coated.

Shell is inert, cleaned and coated.
