British 12 Pounder War Head

British 12 Pounder War Head

Code: 11017

SOLD

British 12 Pounder projectile. Solid steel, very heavy. Retains its copper seal banding. 22cm tall, 7.3cm circumference. Formerly from an officers mess according to an old sticker on the bottom, which I have kept with the projectile. I cannot make out where it has come from sadly as the ink has faded with time. There are plenty of stampings on the shell and a clean would make these more visibile. Weighs in at 5.62kg. Would make a feature doorstop or hold complement an empty shell casing.
