Description:You periodically see a percussion Schenkl cut in half but we've not seen nearly as many of the combination fuse variety. You can clearly see the large number of case shot balls suspended in the black matrix. Fuse threads are very clear. Note the fuse body is present and it appears the shell impacted and broke off the center knob which is very typical on these. Rarely do you see a fired one that still has the complete fuse in it. The iron on this one is ok and has been treated with rust converter to preserve the shell. This gives it the black finish. This is a very nice half shell for the money.
