USS Maine's Bathtub-- Part 4: Does Urbana Still Have It's 10-Inch Shell From the Maine?

At the close of the earlier post today, i wondered if Urbana, Ohio, still have that 10-inch shell from the USS Maine?  At least my early search did not reveal that they still had it.

From the Spanish-American War Centennial  "USS Maine: Her Many Last Resting Places."

There is a really long list of artifacts from the ship, but no mention of a 10-inch shell from the Maine in Urbana, Ohio.  There are, however, 10-inch shells in Scranton, Pennsylvania and Port Chester, New York.  The site does mention that it would like readers to submit other parts of the Maine that they may come across in their travels.
