A sad find after your 'Memorial Day'-but at least you've rescued it-Semper Fidelis.
The statue is pewter. Quite heavy and still a little dirty from being in the heap. It had a lot of fiber insulation stuck on it.
The shell casing is really small... WWI dated, too.
Can't believe what people throw out
Dimensions of the shell case Joe?
I'll take some better photos and measure it up for you within a half hour!
The shell is about 4inches long and an inch and a half wide...
37mm round maybe?
Looking for WWII U.S. dog tags
Yep I would say 37mm.
