Sabot: Copper band

Fuse: Wood time fuse adapter

Book: Dickey and George (1993 Edition) Page 132

Location Recovered: Petersburg

Description:This is a good price on a 3in Broun with its sabot. One sold at auction yesterday for more and it didn't even have a sabot!

I can make out Petersburg in writing on the sabot. Also a faint and large PR is painted on the side. This is on 2 other shells in my collection and must've been some old timer who had a nice group of shells. If anyone knows what PR stands for on these shells, please tell me.
