Marietta Show rocked as usual. Great seeing so many people. Next show will be Wheaton, IL in September. Meanwhile, we have picked up some nice things to list but it will take a few days for us to unpack and get organized so hang in there.

We continue to have occasional issues with emails sent using the buy me button on individual listings. If you do not receive a response back quickly, please email or call us directly via the information provided under the contacts tab. Thank you.

Description:This is a really nice example of a workhorse shell that shows excellent rifling from the 3 groove Parrott rifle. Shell body is in very good condition with very distinct chisel marks on the base where the sprue was removed. The zinc 2 piece percussion fuse is in excellent condition. You rarely see them this nice with both spanner holes crisp on the domed anvil cap. This is a common shell (i.e. not case shot) that you're guaranteed to like in your collection.

The shell is cleaned, coated and disarmed and displays great.
