    Default French 75mm shell?

    Hi guys,

    I've been offered a shell and projectile. The casing looks French to me, but the fuze doesn't look French to me. Is this a German fuze and projectile mated with a French casing?

    Also, the primer in the base, does that look fired? I'm sure it's inert but just in case.. ;-)

    Cheers guys,

    Lenny
