Construction: Cast iron.
Fuzing: Brass Hotchkiss adaptor for paper time fuze.
Approximate size: Weight: 3 pounds. Diameter: 3.60 inches. Length: 5-5/8 inches.
Condition: Excavated, deactivated. The exterior iron shows moderate pitting and evidence of being lightly clear coated long ago. Two flame grooves are present. Sabot and base cup not present.
