Chassepot,

I have this one, as both case and projectile are stamped BSC I assume that they belong together. I haven’t yet unscrewed the brass plug in the shell, it is stuck fast so I will have to treat it with care to remove it someday. This was bought on a flea market in France for 5 Euros a few years ago.
