    20 pound Parrott Artillery Shell - Inventory Number: ART 264 / SOLD

    Large, twenty-pound Federal 3.67" Parrott artillery projectile that was recovered from Culp's Hill after the Battle of Gettysburg.  This Parrott shell specimen, most likely a drop, still retains its wrought iron sabot but is missing the fuse.  Designed by Robert P. Parrott in August 1861, the shell was used with the 20-pounder Parrott rifle of 3.67" caliber.  Shell measures 10" long, has a diameter of 3.63" and weighs almost 17 pounds.  This example is in relic condition and had been deactivated.  Exterior surface is crusted with rust and surface dirt.  A wonderful artillery example of a 20 pounder Parrott projectile found on Culp's Hill in Gettysburg.  With Certificate of Authenticity.
