    can you tell us where he found it ?

    It does look suspicious like a detonator of some kind. If it is, the piece on the bottom could well be the gain. If it is, this is a dangerous item !!!

    He found it in the Reichswald.
    He is/was aware of it, that it could be dangerous.

    cheers,

    It looks like a .303 cardridge but he can't read the headstamp.

    Looks like the detonator assembly for a No74 Mk1 grenade also known as the sticky bomb
