Large projectile (75mm?) identification help


#1

Hello all,

I was given a projectile yesterday and would like to know a little more about it. It measures close to 10" in length and is just under 3" in diameter at the base. I see what appears to be a couple of flaming bomb stamps so I suspect is a US piece.

Any information as to what it is would be appreciated as I’m a total noob.

Thanks!

Suggestions for search terms? I don’t even know where to start with this one.

This should be a US made 75mm for the French field guns which were in US service during WWI and after. You may check on that in the web.
