Item Code: R21791

This was the most common Schenkl pattern purchased by the Federals. Approx. 9-inches long. This unusual looking shell features seven vertical ribs on the tapered base. It employed a papier-mache sabot (which is not present). The original brass percussion fuse is clearly stamped "J.P. SCHENKL PAT. OCT. 16, 1861.” The fuse unscrews from the shell and is very displayable in its own right. Parts this fuse are easily disassembled to see the inner workings.  The cone on the slider was still capped! That percussion cap has since been removed (for safety) and it was observed that the cap employed a leather gasket to protect it from moisture.  The percussion cap with leather gasket is separate but included.

This non-dug shell is in excellent condition with nice dark patina on the iron and brass. The components of the fuse are extremely interesting.   [jet]
