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.

Description:I got this directly from the digger who dug it from the Confederate lines West of the City on private property with permission. The recovery location has since been donated to make a park for Dinwiddie County, but was in private hands back when this shell was dug. Unfired and abandoned when the lines collapsed in April 1865.
