FS: Cool, premature-detonated WW2 40MM Round SOLD

If you ever wondered what a WW2 40MM Round looks like when it explodes in the clip... Here's your answer...


1943-dated HE projectile is unfired (note rotating band) and perfectly mushroomed. I found it sans casing and I've got to think that some sailor brought this home as a "lucky" souvenir? I added a nice 1944 dated brass case. Makes a great conversation piece, steel "flower" art etc. I doubt that there are many of these in non-relic condition.

$125 plus postage. Domestic sales only please. Please PM direct if you are interested. Thanks for looking!

*** SOLD
