Bought these two interesting shells at a fair a while back. Very little marking on both, one has EP 97(1897 i assume) on it, the other only has V and a small dot on it.
According to the guy who sold it, the hollow tips were filled with steel balls, so that the projectile could be shot into a bunker. Maybe to disable its crew but not to destroy it? I got them relatively cheap but I'm curious about them. 1 Pounder is for scale.
