Z2422 Excavated Hotchkiss Canister Lead Sabot
Description: Here is an excellent example of a lead canister sabot from a 3" Hotchkiss canister. There are still remains of the rusted tin can around the sides. The patent information on the base is readable and this is an unfired example out of an old Virginia collection. The base reads, "Hotchkiss' / 3 IN / JAN'Y 7. / 1862 / PATENT.
Measures: 3" in diameter
