Description:12pdr "common" shell in very nice condition. Has a CS time fuse adapter and a distinct mold seam. Iron has not been messed with but is solid. I got this from Pete George who has analyzed the various Confederate 12pdrs by weighing them, and he said its a polygonal cavity shell. There is no way to tell by just looking at the shell. These are actually less common than sideloaders.
