Z1648 Federal 30lb Schenkl Shell with Percussion Fuse for the 4.2" Parrott Rifle (Long Pattern)
Description: Here is a superb 4.2" Schenkl shell with the original fuse. The iron on this example is very nice and could be cleaned up a little more if desired. This shell is drilled through the knob on the end. The fuse is still intact with the readable patent information. It would be hard to upgrade this example!
Measures: 4.1" x 12.5"
Recovered: Appomattox River, Virginia
