this auction is for a original WWII vintage unfired 155mm Artillery Shell & Fuze dated 1944. Shell is in very good condition for age with minor dings and marks about surface area. Shell is maker stamped: "CF&I Lot - OSW - 94 - 1944 - 155 MM 101 2-248". HE Shell measures: 28 1/2" in length and 20" in diameter at the rotating band ( is still intact with a small ding in copper band ) picture shows this. M48 series fuse is not the correct fuse for this shell ( it doesn't have the same threads for shell, but does fit into shell ) fuze has markings of "Delay & S/Q" which has a straight turn device.
