Description:A shell that is purely Confederate with the CS copper fuse adapter and the lead side loader plug to facilitate the use of the iron case shot balls. I got this from a collection of a hunter who hunted northeast North Carolina and the Richmond area so it should be from one of those locals but it was a long time ago but he is not sure.

The shell has good solid iron showing some divots from the ground action but nothing big or deep. The shell was cleaned in electrolysis which removed the white from the side plug but it is otherwise in nice condition. The CS Copper fuse adapter is very good with no dings, etc. It is drilled through the fuse to disarm.

Shell is inert, cleaned and coated.
