Seller's Description

U.S. 155mm Artillery/Howitzer Shell, INERT unfired

INERT, Unfired, U.S., M483, 155mm Army Howitzer shell for training or display. Sold as a curio, relic, surplus piece, with absolutely NO EXPLOSIVE / HARMFUL COMPONENT. This round was designed as a payload delivery shell. It could be loaded with anti-personnel or anti-armor grenades, used as a flare unit, or as a high-explosive shell. Unfired, there are no rifling marks on the rotating bands. No baseplug or fuse, but it does have the threaded nose plug / lifting ring. Shell is OD green and the ring/plug is yellow. There are no painted markings, only the lot number and nomenclature stamped in the body. Length is 32 1/2 inches, diameter is 6 1/4 inches (rotating bands). The empty cavity has been filled with inert material. This shell cannot be fired, it has been de-milled by a slot cut into the rotating/sealing bands. This cannon projectile has been stored outside for the last 10-12 years. There are some dings, rust spots and the paint is faded some. I have several of these so the dings, chips, etc. may be a little different, on the one you receive, than shown in the photos. Shell weighs 50 pounds unpackaged. Great display item for any military collector, cartridge/ammunition collector or use as a large door stop, home or office conversation piece. I have seen similar 155's for sale at some sites going for $250.00. Will be shipped USPS Parcel Post, or UPS Ground, to Continental U.S. states only. Shipping weight will be on 55 lbs. from zip 35188.
