rare, Confederate, copper, time fused, Reed
- Parrott projectile with the super scarce
lead side loading plug. This
projectile was recovered near High Bridge,
Virginia, and has been disarmed, cleaned,
and coated. In over 40 years, this is
only the fourth one of these that I have
ever had. The projectile's overall
condition is very nice, but it did throw the
sabot as is often the case with this type
shell. It has been over five years
since I have had one of these to offer for

cannon projectile. This projectile was
recovered many years ago on private property

Shell" had enough powder in it to blow up
half of Murfreesboro!!! It is all safe
now and ready to go in someone's

projectile that is not recovered very
often. (The vial contains a sample of
the powder that I removed from the shell.)--$395.
