Z1710 Federal 3" Schenkl Percussion Fused Shell
Description: Here is an excavated 3" Schenkl shell with the percussion fuse. I think with some work the fuse would clean up a little better. This shell has one larger pit on the nose of the shell with small to moderate pitting throughout. The fuse is not screwed in all of the way and based on the multiple markings on the fuse, the threads may have stripped when it was originally ready to fire. It has been cleaned and coated.
Measures: 2.94" x 9"
