    25 Pr. exLamp - well it's better than not having one ~

    Or so I imagine ~
    Some markings left on upper body, or traces of. Dates and manufacturer marks
    likely polished off. Slight pitting over all, but not deep or ghastly. All I choose to do was
    clean off all the loose powdery rust and wax it. Band is in good condition and hole for wire
    through it. It's 100 to one for finding these versus 18Pr. lamped projectiles or worse, I've
    not seen many of them one way or another.
    $80=$61 U.S. = L50 pounds.

    Great find Gordon!

    Yes trench art projectile lamps are a great way to "liberate" back for hard to find ordnance as shown with this 1914 unfired Austro-Hungary 8cm shrapnel projectile complete with its correct matching fuze!
    (The fuze still had the original red time scale paint)

    Cheers

    Yours was an extrodinary find - 18Pr lamps are like the lice of ordnance collecting, usually beyond repreive. Rarely either a good lamp or projectile.
    A 25 Pr. is quite unusual - bonus 2 pound lump of solid brass nose ~
    Oddly at the same place a few weeks back I picked up a 25Pr case that had a brass disc soldered into the end and a brass loop thing soldered
    to the primer so it hung up some how some where. It all came off and cleaned up.
