Hello everyone! (I have many photos but since im a new user i cant post them all, if you have any ideas about this one please message me)
A few months ago I purchased this artillery/tank shell from an antique store and no matter how much digging and researching I do I cant manage to figure out where or when its from. I was hoping someone on here may be able to assist me in any way?
The shell came with the brass casing which has a screw fitting in the bottom for a primer, but its missing, there are no marks at all on the brass shell casing whatsoever. The projectile though has a strange fuze (if a fuze at all) which simply has a large screw top as it appears. The markings on the bottom of the projectile read as follows:
FTJ (both may possibly be “R’s”)
