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.

A00684 - US 4.2in Schenkl shell

Item Number: A00684

Item Title: US 4.2in Schenkl shell

Price: $595

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US

Type: Schenkl

Size: 4.2in



Book: Jack Bell Page 362

Location Recovered: Probably non dug

Description:This is the shell for a 30pdr Parrott and weghs close to that, 5lbs more than the book says. I think it is a case shot. Has a wooden fuse plug (not adapter, plug) shoved down in it. These are popular for their distinctive shape and really tough to get. This one is either an early pickup or non dug I think. The fuse threads will clean up easily if you want to put a fuse in it.

This is the last of the big Schenkls I have for sale so don't put off thinking there is an unlimited supply of them coming!
