    Found in a shed.

    Hi,
    could anyone help me with this find.
    its 11cm(4 Inches) long and 11.5cm (4.5 Inches) around.

    It is steel with what looks like copper, brass or lead sleaving about 1 inch long up the projectile, 1/2 inch from the base.

    It has a hole in the base and around it are 1 3 F stamped in to the steel.

    I hope someone can help me.

    Re:Found in a shed.

    Grimnar,i agree with the other moderators on this,, its definately a leave alone item untill its been properly looked at by trained persons ,its dificult to see in the photos but looks like you have the tracer still present or worse a broken off base fuze which could indicate an explosive filling.You need to contact your local police/authoritys to explain what you have found and they will arrange everything else,,its beter to be safe than sorry...Please let us know the outcome

    Re:Found in a shed.

    Hi,
    thanks for the responses. From what I have been told it was brought back by a veteran from ww2, and was checked over by someone in the engineering corp before it was brought back.

    Can anyone tell what its nationality is or what sort of weapon fired it?

    by the way its a solid shot.

    Should a solid shot have a tracer or base fuze?

    cheers
