Description:This is a common shell that was thought to possibly be a polygonal cavity but it turned out not to be. But it is still a great example of a frequently used shell in siege and naval operations as the 24-lber gun was too big and heavy to haul around. This shell is very clean with a nice cut, clean and coated powder cavity with the shell exterior also cleaned and coated.

NOTE: The Bormann fuse is shown in the powder cavity to only to show the size of the shell. It is not part of the offering.
