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.

A00837 - Unbelievably rare Baby Whitworth shell in mint condition

Item Number: A00837

Item Title: Unbelievably rare Baby Whitworth shell in mint condition

Price: $2950

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US






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.
