    Unknown Shell with Two Driving Bands??

    Hello Folks -

    Picked this up online, it was advertised as a WW1 German Gunboat Shell. But, having collected Great War items for 50+ years that doesn't seem right. Hollow clean through. Not in hand yet, so no dimensions.

    Thanks very much for looking. Looking forward to any thoughts!

    - Mike

    Hello,
    Not easy without dimensions, but this shell looks like a German WW1 9cm shrapnel model 91 (typical bands and base screwed).
    Regards

    Why I believe that's it! Thank you very much. Pretty crusty, would it be the correct route, to clean it up a bit? Not familiar with the relic shells and the preferred way to care for them.

    In hand now, and OD measures ~88.5mms., while the height (minus base) is ~7.5"s (190mms.)

    Best regards!
