    Shells are not my field, but I should think that an early studded example could quite easily have been made in 1896, either 6/96 or 9/96 depending on which way up the shell is. I am sure some of our shell experts can tell you more.

    I picked it up at a flea market in Quebec City for $15.00 a couple of years ago. I couldn't decide if the date was stamped on the copper lug or if it was on the base. I was pretty excited to find what I consider a scarce projectile.

    Yes, it does appear to be the shrapnel shell on the right of the drawing. Thanks for the info

    There are no laws against owning deactivated ordnance in Canada. Canada post will not ship any ordnance whether deactivated or replica and if discovered in the mail system it will be confiscated and destroyed. Of course if the item is packaged well then it's not an issue as they (Canada Post) would never know.
