    Default Help IDing 35-37mm projectile

    Hi,

    I do have an object that I picked up a few years ago in an antique/thrift store in Texas that I am having trouble identifiying. I was hoping some of you guys may be able to help.

    The store listed it as a "paper weight" and sold for around 50 cent. I object appears to be some kind of projectile. Its 35 mm in diameter and approximatly 3 3/4 inches tall. It is solid steel with a hollow center and the open end is threaded. There is a copper? band 3/4 inches wide that is stamped " 8 LOT 4075-5"

    I did some research and found no 35mm US round but did find some info on a 37mm anti-tank round, though it really does not look like anything I have been able to find.

    Enlosed are some photos I took,

    Thanks for any help,
    Randy

    Its got the look of a Brit POM POM round but I'm far from an expert.

    It appears to be a U.S. 37mm 1 pounder projectile from WWI.

    I'd say it looks like a MK1 37mm. Utilized in WW1 fired from a French-made M1916.
