Size: 24 Pounder (5.82 Inch) Caliber

Sabot: Wood Cup (Missing)

Location Recovered: Spanish Fort/Blakely AL area

Description:First let me apologize there are no images on this shell. Due to the weather I haven't unpacked from the Franklin Show and it will be a couple days before I can get to it. I will send images if requested unless it sells. So for now the picture of the cannon in the snow falling at Kennesaw Mountain Military Park will have to suffice. :)

This is a very nice cannon ball which probably has a polygonal cavity interior and it is probably star shaped based on the cutting of a number of the shells from this grouping. The iron on this one was too good to cut. Nice wood fuse hole.

Shell is cleaned, coated and disarmed.
