    Default 12 inch Shell Projectile Identification

    Hi Gang,

    Found these in a basement, I cannot figure out what they are, what they are for, age, value if any?

    They are nice pieces, I like em!

    Approx size 12 x 2.75 (heavy) Steel? 13" if you count dummy fuse

    Shell 1 (Left Side) 3 piece construction
    Markings Bottom Appears to read “US 7A 74” (the number seven has a very large bend to it) also a triangle with letter and some round logo
    marked on outside B 380 marked on upper ring B380 and marked “C” on bottom

    Shell 2 (Right Side) 2 Piece construction (Right side) NO Markings at all

    I was “told” the former owner of the home worked at the Picatinny Arsenal In Dover, NJ
    But I cannot confirm this.

    I wish to thank you guys in advance for your help and knowledge!!
