This is a complete used inert and empty WW1 British 18 pounder shrapnel shell, brass case and fuse. This WW1 collectable would make a great present for a militaria collector or for use as an unusual doorstop or fireside decoration. This militaria relic has been painted and polished whilst still retaining its authenticity with the expected impact damage to the fuse and some historical marks to the brass case IN KEEPING WITH ITS 100 YEAR AGE. There are the usual marks to the brass and the common pinking patina from age. The brass base is dated 1917. This comes apart into 2 pieces for ease of postage. (1, brass shell case, 2, fuse and shrapnel shell are glued together and do not separate)  This means that you could add sand to the brass case to make for a heavier doorstop. This was bought at a French market in the Somme and has been painted and polished in the UK. We buy all my stock in France from local markets and as such all the items we sell are used or vintage and will show signs of a previous life, in this case it is over 100 years old and has been fired. This is all part of their unique vintage/antique appeal. It is not always possible to show every minor scratch on a photo so if you are looking for new then these may not be for you. Any significant flaws are always highlighted in both photos and descriptions. Please bear in mind that this is over 100 years old and has been fired and left in the ground for 90+ years, the marks and wear are part of its history and are to be celebrated rather than seen as damage.
