Pre-WW1 6inch Casing Possibly for M1897 Coast Artillery


Recommended Posts

I saved this shell from a scrap yard about 9-10 years ago. I was poking around my collection last night and decided to take some photos of it. It was made at the Frankfort Arsenal in 1915.

 

I'm not sure if it is for the M1908 Field Gun or the M1897 Coast Gun but doing a little research I'm thinking the "Armstrong" that is stamped into the base is for the Coast Artillery. Can anyone tell me for sure?

Always looking for WW1 28th Division; anything, papers, field gear, uniforms, etc.
