    AP Projectile Identification needed

    Does anyone know precisely what this is.
    Photos sent from a friend with no sizes given but I assume the calibre is 3 inch

    3-IN FS COM (common, loaded with black powder or BP and TNT) MK III MOD 6(?) by the stamping on the base. US Naval for 3" 23cal (both landing gun and ship mounted) and 3" 50cal. Looks to have been made in 11-17. Used base fuze MKXII, MKXII MOD1, MKII MOD 9 or SEMPLE TRACER FUZE MK III for that time frame.
