    Think its some sort of detonator from a grenade or artillery shell, dangerous probably

    Some very old thing i think
    I'd love some info on that one. I've found several in Korea from that war. It's not from a 20mm or mortar from
    what I can tell and it seems pretty harmless. Since I found several in Korea I can only assume it's U.S.

    I got this answer:
    -The detonator you found is from a 81mm Gr34 German Mortar shell.

    Nice finds! I am saving for a metall detector myself.. I really want to start my battlefield archeology career A nice porta quote is "Now we have finished, let's have a song. What about 'It's Lovely To Be A Pimp'?" !

    Hell, I see someone beat me to it, but it is a Crotal Bell...these were used from the 1500s until today..of course your is older...
    They are found all over the wrold, I have dug several here in Canada, and I have see them dug in the US and UK...Mostly used on horses.
    Heres a good link for them
