    Default Small find in Holland

    Hi Guys,

    Found this just layin on the soil of a forest in Holland. Didn't have to dig for it or whatsoever! But what is it? I personally think it's something from a artillery shell's percussion cap but i'm not sure. Hope someone can help me

    Thanks Tony and Steve!

    So if I understand you right this is the thingy that sets the gunpowder on fire in the shell case? And do you happen to know, or have an idea from what country and what type of shell this is? Regarding the place were it's found it must be British or German
