They are very distinctive because of the tapered style back section with the knob on the end. This pattern is often referred to by collectors as a "Football" style Schenkl because of the shape. At the top of the shell it has the original percussion fuse. You can still read most of the marking around the top of the fuse including the Schenkl 1861 patent. The body of the shell has nice looking iron that has been cleaned long ago for display and preservation. This is a nice looking excavated Civil War Schenkl shell.
