Z1711 Federal 20lb Parrott Shell (Long Pattern)
Description: Nice excavated 20lb Parrott shell with the brass ring sabot intact. The top of the fuse is missing on this example. This one was recovered in Vicksburg so the iron would be very nice if properly cleaned. There is a long shallow gouge on the side and it may have been from impact.
Measures: 3.63" x 10.25"
Recovered: Vicksburg, Mississippi
