    Reminds me of Spanish-American war artillery shells and I'm a bit concerned about it... being live... Unless that is a hole in the bottom

    There looks to be what seems like a lead plug stuck into the hole in the base. It doesn't Look like a detonator...(doesn't mean it Couldn't be one, of course...)

    I'm not sure what to suggest , I'd try to find out if it's filled with lead or not . Take a close look at that bottom plug , use a small flat head screwdriver to scratch the metal lead will mark easily , if it is lead I believe this would be inert . Just proceed carefully .
