I have an old artillery shell which I was given about 40 years ago and used as a bank.
The top easily comes off and it is empty...the thing I am really not sure about is if the primer(?) is missing. The small threaded plug on the bottom I have never opened and my Dad can't recall if he had ever checked it. Job for the Bomb Squad? I always thought it was great as a kid to have in my room and would like to pass it on to a kid who would want it.
Maybe someone can also tell me what this shell is (picture attached).
Bottom says : 5in AACOM MK35 Mod. 10MMP 37 Lot.
