Description:This is a much better than most example of the Confederate polygonal cavity shell. There are a few variants but this is the most typical style that broke into pentagons. This was a great ideal the Confederates had as it made it so every frag from the exploding shell was big enough to do serious damage.

The outside of shell is cleaned and coated and the inside is also cleaned and coated.
