    Of your two projectiles, the one on the left is a 76.2mm Russian. There were bazillions of these made during WWI in the U.S.to ship to Europe, and you being in Connecticut are right in the middle of the manufacturing area where they were made. The one on the right is a standard U.S. 75mm MK I HE with the standard PD fuze. These were fired by the French 75 caliber guns. The National Guards fired them in the U.S. up till the 1930s. The fuze was so touchy, that they were ordered to stand behind concrete barricades to pull the firing lanyards, except in wartime. Neither projo goes with the case you pictured for the 3 inch field gun.
