    So here is an interesting one ...
    Story goes this was found in someone's grandfathers footlocker. Their grandfather served in WWII as an engineer.

    Length: 85.58-MM
    Width: 17.66-MM
    Height: 17.26-MM

    This is kind of a strange one. It is too squared off, and the open bottom is really strange. To top it off the firing pin is very rudimentary. I think it might be a prototype, but that is just a guess. There are no markings.

    Any ideas?
