    Seems to feel like a metal casing. But I used a scalpel to scrap off the dirt and it seemed like carbon. Colour is a dark gun metal silver. I am thinking a battery. But not sure.

    Lol. Detonator........bless

    I dig hundreds of these things up when out metal detecting for ww2 relics. It is a battery. By the looks of things a 'C' cell.

    Quite right too !

    They are a bloody nuisance as they give a mixed tone when metal detecting and even the carbon rods give a signal !

    I hope your friend isn't an armourer !
