Any Idea of a value range?

Steve,

A lot of the value will depend on what the projectile/fuze is. From that picture, that looks like a regular (not “Drill”) case, and one would assume fired. What is in the other end? I have seen many more Drill projectiles with the turned down copper rotating band and dummy fuze than actual HE/T versions with an inerted fuze. Would be great if it is the later and with original markings! Still have yet to see that…

Can you provide some more pics?

Dave

Steve,

That looks like a nice inert projectile with dummy fuze. Possibly a Target Practice?

Steve,

Don’t really see that many out there to be able to put a price to it. I have seen the “Drill” rounds with reduced diameter rotating band and associated markings go for $50-$75 in the past. I would think a nice original case and projectile would bring a premium over that provided the case has no big dings, etc…
