Although it is in relic condition, this Japanese 25mm Navy Dummy cartridge is still scarce.
Some vandal wanted the fuze so I ask would it be a brass or steel dummy fuze?
It is hollow inside down to the base hole. Base has a screw so would have unscrewed.
The projectile has steel drive band so not sure if it is one piece body or has an inserted projectile.
K.Elks book Vol 2 p.163 shows a dummy but not sure if steel or brass bands.
I would like to repair and fill the damaged parts. Pitting is another problem (too hard?).
