James Artillery Shell #2!

James Artillery Shell Type I
James Pattern I Sub Pattern I Artillery Shell

Wow! I can’t believe I found another intact Civil War artillery shell. This is another James pattern I sub pattern I. Just over the fence line from the hay field where I found my first James shell the dirt turns to a dark alkaline clay. That is where I was detecting when this beauty popped up.

That type of soil is easy on the relics and this shell is in exquisite condition. It only spent two weeks in electrolysis vs the month long process for my last shell.
