The lead sabot still has the impression of the linen fabric that was used to keep the lead from fouling the bore of the rifled cannon.  This example has a dimple and the patent date on the base cup.  This projectile was intended to be fired from a rifled 6-pounder smoothbore cannon of 3.67-inch caliber.
