Comments: Notice   According to Peter George, co-author of "Field Artillery Projectiles of the American Civil War", "this type shell made their battlefield appearance is Spring 1863.  It appears to be unfired, as I cannot see any rifling marks at all.  This type almost always “takes the rifling” extremely well.  To see no rifling-marks at all strongly indicates it exploded without being fired.  Perhaps it was in a caisson that got hit and blew up".
