Rare Projectile for 3.2 inch Spanish American War Cannon

There are three projectiles available. Each was used in the 3.2 inch US Army Field Artillery piece which was a rifled gun. I refer to it as the work horse of the Spanish American War. Capron and Utah batteries used this model gun. All have the same base fuse system which is deactivated. One has been fired and the rifling in the driving band is visible in the photos. These are all over 100 years old so have mars and blemishes as you would expect. One has been painted black which could be easily removed if wanted. Please email me and tell which shell you have interest in.
