    I discovered this shell in a brand new box of .410 gauge Winchester shells.

    It appears that the brass was blackened before the primer was inserted.

    Has anyone seen anything like this?

    Probably got dropped in a batch of hulls that were to be blackened for the .410 defense loads (for the judge).
