    I
    found Friedmans listing of a Driggs 3 "Mark 13 boat gun (landing gun?). Sounds good, but no photos or drawings.

    It's marked to the Driggs Guns and Ammunition Co, has a flat tip, takes a small base fuze or tracer/fuze etc. so I think it's a common shell. Your drawing is accurate but
    the top of the common shell image is cut off I think it would show a flat tip.

    Also, it looks to me like it is stamped "Lot 1"....Lot 1 of 1903 or Lot 1 of ever? Just thought that was kind of interesting...I could be wrong, its tough to make out, but that's what it looks like to me...
