This is a great looking Confederate artillery shell. It is an original 2.9 inch version of the smooth sided Confederate Read shell. They look very similar to the Union Parrott shells with a couple of major differences. On the body of the shell it has the purely Confederate bourrelet rings. It has an original copper time fuse holder that is in excellent shape. The fuse is removable which is a neat thing to show your friends. This one has an excellent iron sabot intact and it is the style with the very thin and high convex iron sabot. You can clearly see the lands and grooves in the iron where it was fired out of the rifled cannon. The shell has been nicely cleaned and coated for display and preservation. It has the verbal history that it was recovered in Petersburg, Virginia outside of Richmond. This is a great looking and purely Confederate artillery shell.
