    Confederate 2.25-Inch " Baby" Tennessee / Mullane Shell. The iron body of this shell has moderate pitting throughout but this is a rare shell in any condition. The copper fuse plug in the nose is smaller than the standard Confederate type. The edges of the fuse plug look to be slightly dented or worn and the plug is not seated all the way down. The copper sabot has a central bolt holding in in place. The head of this bolt is flush with the bottom of the sabot. There are also three iron pins protruding from the base of the shell which pass through corresponding holes on the sabot. This style of sabot is referred to as the Tennessee or Mullane. This round was meant for use in the Confederate mountain rifle which was a 2.25 inch caliber gun.
