[url]http://wsphotofews.excite.com/002/q5/J9/Cn/bG66987.jpg[/url] My Grandfather gave me this. He told me a buddy of his made this before the battle for Anzio with only a file, and a torch. .50 slugs on a 75mm base(1941 stamp) w/.30 cal cases for butts. soldered with bullet lead. He came into posession of it when his bud was killed at Anzio. Edited to reduce to a link ( too big )

I have (had? haven't seen it since I moved) some sort of large artillery shell casing that had been decorated (stippled); no idea where it is now. Picked it up at a gunshow years ago; don't know the story behind it, unfortunately. [:(] That's a nice piece of work; please keep the story with it, whatever is known. . . .
