Is there other type of "shell" that is not expanded?

Yes, an unexpanded one which must be paired with a cut down coin.
For example, Schoolcraft "Dean's Sets" are unexpanded.

The only reason you need a Expanded shell is if you are going to Borrow 4 half's ( As it said's in Bobo's ) And your not going to do that today !

Unless you plan on doing multiple effects use coins handled by spectators, or utilize a shimmed or magnetic coin, or masking a different type of coin.

Silliest thing I have ever seen is putting away a coin in one pocket, then pulling out another for the next trick.

But yes, for a single effect a non-expanded gaff may be better such as the TUC where an EXP [ can then be added if desired.

Many coin boxes will not accept an EXP coin.

Then there are 'sliders' as a different kind of EXP [
