Dud WWI arty round

One of my crews found this while working on a powerline r/w. During WWI Camp Sherman here in Chillicothe had a artillery range which is now State Forest land. These turn up from time to time. I thought you guys would get a kick out of this treasure. The sucker weighs 24 pounds

Re: Dud WWI arty round

I remember reading an article a few years ago about a fellow in Belgium who took up detecting as a hobby and has found enough unexploded ordinance in his country to fill a Walmart Supercenter.
