Twenty-pound Federal 3.67” Parrott artillery projectile that was recovered from the Battle of Gettysburg. This hefty Parrott shell specimen, most likely a drop, still retains its wrought iron sabot but is missing the original brass, time fuse adapter. 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 is deactivated. Exterior surface is pitted from exposure to the elements. Accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
