Item Number: A00837
Item Title: Unbelievably rare Baby Whitworth shell in mint condition
Shipping: Not included
Location Recovered: Non dug
Description:This is the one they call the "Baby" Whitworth shell. It is non dug and about one and two thirds inch across the flats so much smaller than the normal Whitworths you see. On top of that this is a shell that is threaded for a fuse that was never installed.
Most people have never seen one of these super rare Whitworth shells. A dealer from Eastern Tennessee offered $4000 for this shell a couple years ago!
Previously this came out of a South Carolina museum where it had been for many decades which explains the fabulous condition.
