Just finished a bullet run yesterday, got some nice new toys and a couple of question marks. Best toy of the day is a nicely marked 175mm. I’ve always had a fondness for the 175s, and they seem to be the hardest to find.
Along with large and mid calibers I found a couple of small pieces as well, two which have me a bit puzzled. The first is described as a kiln or industrial cartridge, of a type I’ve never seen before. I know that there are a lot of variations out there, can anyone confirm?
They second I have no idea. A fellow member has some theories and is certain he has seen either a thread or an article on it, but I’m having troubles accepting some of his recollections. Maybe someone can fill in some blanks? Markings on the base are "PATD Dec 8 1931, PAT PEND, Peters. Thanks in advance, JO
