    18pdr Shrapnel + French Shrapnel

    Hi
    I thought I would post an 18pdr shrapnel and a French shrapnel shell. Ive always thought that the 18pdr was period done, with original paint and lacquer on the band. Not too sure of the fuze though it is a nice complete unfired one with the leather washer in place. The French shell is clearly not period but is such a complex construction that it is, to me at least a very interesting piece.
    Cheers

    Many thanks for this. I'd not appreciated how complex the French shells were.;
    William Mills - Thank you!
