    I have a few tobacco "jars" also made of shells, a couple are rather nice..no way a Soldier made them, I have always thought about how the tobacco would taste being held in brass.

    About the same way Beer would, I imagine! lol I've always wondered too about all the shell vases...if you ever put Water in them and used them, wouldn't they eventually turn as green as the Statue of Liberty? Although, they did(and still do) use shotglasses made from shell cases, so who knows, I suppose. I've used a Stalingrad recovered shotglass for decades and no problems...
