Z1659 Confederate 12lb. "Common" Shell with Copper Fuse Adaptor
Description: Here is a very nice Confederate shell without the more common sideloader plug. This one has even pitting throughout and has been cleaned and coated. There is a threaded allen key plug in the base which was used for electrolysis. This style of shell is harder to find than the common sideloader types.
