    This is what I was talkin about. Police just unscreved fuses and left them on the bottom. Can them explode if i move them or is it safe? And the last picture. I found it a few meters avay? Is this a part of the fuse or?

    Well unfortunately the most dangerous bit, the gaine, is attached to the underside of the fuse, which isn't visible- so it's impossible to say whether or not this stuff is still quite dangerous. And that small round object doesn't look like any munitions component I'm familiar with- I'd think it was an electrical connector or something with those projecting pins and the threaded base.
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    atr 42 is the case manufacturer and year. The other code at 12 o'clock IIRC is the company responsible for loading the round (so it's only present when that's someone different). These are fuzed in the field so are shipped with a bakelite screw cap on the end of the shell. The fuzes themselves have bakelite containers and are supplied separately (for obvious reasons )

    Here's my complete ex-Finnish Flak88 with complete fuse, standing next to my 88mm WW1 U-Boat deck cannon shell
