So I finally got around to taking some things off a top shelf and cleaning the dust off of them.

Both shell and case were together when I rescued them from the Ignorant.

No markings on the case - anyone have input on that?

I don't think the projectile and case match, notice the profile shot-the rotating band projects way past the neck of the shell. The case may be a 37mm. Just guessing, but it just doesn't look correct.

I saw the same swell as you're seeing, yet the case matches the dimensions for the 1 PDR (37mm) USN round.
