So a while back I found thus shell which I believe is navy, but that is all I know since I haven't had any luck finding another one nor the manufacturers. Any help would be appreciated. The shell is 12 inches long and the base measures 2 3/4 inches.

6-Pdr. is usually another name for a 57mm projectile.  10-17 is the production date.  U.S.N.G. should have an F. also but this one doesn't.  That would stand for: Naval Gun Factory Washington, DC.  I assume that is what the U.S.N.G. stands for.  I was not able to find out who A.L.W. is. " Ammunition Loading Washington Navy Yard"?
