A00191 - Spectacular Half Section of a 3in Hotchkiss Case Shot Shell

Item Number: F00191

Item Title: Spectacular Half Section of a 3in Hotchkiss Case Shot Shell

Price: $235

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: US

Type: Hotchkiss case shot shell

Size: 3in

Sabot:

Fuse:

Book:

Location Recovered: Spanish Fort, AL

Description:This one has it all down to the "cut nail" in the lower powder cavity that originally held the sand casting core in place. It also has small, misshapen lead shot which is unusual. The fuse adapter and connector through the pusher plate (used to propel the shot in one direction out the nose of the shell) shows the system perfectly. This was an advanced design that set the standard for the future.
