    Unknown Projectile ogival Nose fuze Inert


    Hello whats your opinion on what i came up with it seems logical but ones logic always differs from anothers NO I doubt its not a Civil War or ? World War 1 But perhaps World War II and I'm wondering what type of material is it made out of Lead,Zinc,Kersite,Or tin and aluminum. it's a little bit over 2 inches just before 2 and 1/4 so it's probably in millimeter so to European, English or German Usually most nose fuzes are strait and this one has a ogival nose radii and also it still has a nipple for either machining or casting whis seems weird because if it hit a hard surface it would of been smashed and that's why i think it had been embedded in a soft surface / ground and the timed trigger/ fuze wasn't attached inside of this nose cavity was probably a centrifugal force trigger

    It is oval at the end due to impact but measure widest 2.088/1000" by smallest 2.007/1000" That's at the threads, The ID is 1.315/1000" 1.212/1000" the dia at the top outside edge is 2.266/1000" and its not as bent their so it could be a 2 1/4" dia nose length / height 3.750/1000"

    I had seen an M but the area that's chipped away is the part that has the #'s so who knows their is a 5 stamped on the threads and it is almost 4" long and by close to 2 1/4' in dia it is oval and it looks like it went thru sand from the spiral groove on the nose thanks Austin And
    .It looks like it probably exploded the shell and the fuze nose continued and embedded in some type of soft grainler ground that embedded carved the spiral grooves in the soft material and it didn't hit directly in the surface but on an angle and that why its not all the way around the nose the sprils continued on the threads on 1 side that can be seen and when the shell exploded it chipped away the edge of the shoulder and thats why its chipped their. It looks like the identifying # was aproxx guess 8800XXXXX0005YM that's only a guess i got from the distance to the M too bad it got chipped away and figures that the only area that's chipped is the area that had the stock/reference numbers ;-( The image below is to a WWII fuze the mechanical part isn't in the nose but it just covers the mechanical mechanism. That's my belief. I can't think of anything else it could be The picture below is of one like it but the fastening holes are higher and not on the threads.Like on mine Don't we all love mysteries to solve

    Looks a bit like the nose for a 2.25" SCAR. There are several minor variations, yours may be one of them.
