I wanted to get a picture before I got them all dirty with soot from burned solid propellant.
Those are fresh, never-fired, Starline .38 Special shell casings.
I've reloaded thousands of shell casings, but they've all been at least once-fired. They never come out of the tumbler that clean, inside and out. I had a Brownells gift card, and not enough .38 Special brass, so a brown truck brought me these little brass gems.
