Just posted some nice items out of the South Carolina museum group I brought back yesterday. This may well be our last postings before the Wheaton Show next weekend (4/29) and Mansfield the week after (5/6-7). We hope to see you at one or both of the shows. We will have anice cselection of canister rounds at Mansfield. These are very difficult to ship safely so not currently listed here.

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.

Fuse: N/A

Book: Dickey and George (1993 Edition) Page 215

Location Recovered: Vicksburg, MS

Description:This is a wonderful example of this rarity 7+ (D&G) bolt. The bulk of these are found at Vicksburg with a few from Georgia and a couple other late war sites.

The cast iron body is smooth other than a small amount of ground action. Clearly evident on this projectile is the chisel marks from the cut off sprue from the vent hole and fill hole. I do not believe this bolt has gone through electrolysis where I think it would clean up very excellent if the buyer so wanted.

The iron sabot is nice clearly showing where it was pre-stamped with the 3-groove rifling for the Parrott gun.

A great projectile in better than average shape you're sure to like.

Shell appears to be very lightly coated but otherwise is as dug.
