3inch Hotchkiss Shell in dug condition from the Vicksburg area. The iron shows moderate ground action throughout, though it has been cleaned and coated. The lead band sabot is still in place with some rifling noted. Some of the white oxidation is worn away exposing the lead. It has been disarmed just above the sabot on the nose. As you can see it retains the percussion fuse.
