Sorry, this item is no longer available!



Item Number: A00767

Item Title: 7in Harding shell

Price: $795

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US

Type: Harding

Size: 7in

Sabot: Copper ring

Fuse: Wood time fuse adapter for Girardey fuse

Book: Jack Bell Page 231

Location Recovered: Long Island, SC near Charleston

Description:Jack Bell lists this as a rarity 9 projectile. Relatively few of these were used and most threw their sabots, but this one has a complete sabot with terrific rifling marks. This is the only one I have. There is one chip in the iron right above the sabot from firing. Since these pictures were taken, it has been lightly coated for preservation and is darker now.

This also has the neat wood time fuse adapter with the raised ring to accommodate the Girardey fuses that were used in many of these Hardings.

Recovered by Greg Craven and conserved by David Pearsall.
