What's the difference you ask?
Coffins are wide to accommodate the shoulders, while small at the foot end. Modern day caskets aren't anywhere near the shape of a coffin.
Thanks to the law professor who first thought caskets were fancy and coffins were plain until he heard from a funeral home.
This is a coffin.
