6lb Boreman on a Sabot - SOLD
This is a round shell mounted on a wood sabot with a Boreman fuze inserted. The diameter of the shell is over 3". The turned wood sabot allowed the powder bag to be attached to become a fixed round of ammunition for the cannon. These were stored in the limber chest and readily available for the crew to load the cannon. Needless to say this was not fired and rarely survived.
The condition of the shell and sabot is excellent and the metal strapping is original and quite nice. This makes a great display piece
This is a consigned piece.
