    Rarest of the Rare!

    Confederate 3.67 Inch Marshall Asenal Schenkl Shell, recovered in the area of the Red River Campaign. This rare shell is in excellent unfired condition. The bulbous nose section of the shell has a smooth clean body. The tapering tail of the shell is in like condition with 12 very pronounced raised ribs. At the bottom of the shell is a round iron base that was used to seat the wooden sabot which is now gone. The center of this round base has what appears to be a lathe dimple. The fuse hole in the nose has no threads showing that it took a wooden fuse plug and paper time fuse.
    This shell and others were recovered at the site where a caisson tumbled off a bridge at Provencal, Louisiana during the Red River Campaign. It is believed that these rounds were made at the Confederate Arsenal in Marshall, Texas. This is a super nice example of a rare shell.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
