    Default 37mm trenchart, Hotchkiss Shell

    On my summer holiday in the France region, Dordogne I stumble over this really nice trench art, WWI 37mm Hotchkiss shell in very good condition.

    The black gunpowder is removed but the percussion, nose fuze is still active!

    Not your typical holiday gifts

    Fine! very easy to find because it was a souvenir from the WWI por poilus, In each family this kind of ammunition or 75 mm or the helmet.

    Okay I thought these pieces with the fuse still on it are not so easy to find?
