Click on an image to enlarge
Dug 3inch Hotchkiss Shell with percussion fuse in place. It has been disarmed and drilled through the side of the nose. There is more ground action on one side vs the other, but displays very nicely. It has been cleaned an coated. The lead sabot also shows some ground action and has a ding on one side. Hard to tell if its from the digger's shovel or when it hit something, but it appears old and blends in nicely with the rest of the shell's patina. The recovery site is unknown.
