AR1 US 3" Hotchkiss Shell, Wood Fused Type I.
Very slick 3" Hotchkiss Shell that appears to be an early battlefield pickup. The iron is smooth with a layer of dark green paint. The fuse plug is unthreaded to take a wood fuse adapter, which is a trait of early Hotchkiss shells. There is a small chip out of the metal on one side of the fuse plug, and a chip out of the base cup. The Hotchkiss patent information is faintly visible on the base cup.
