    This is a Trench Art scratched flower and dated 1917 design on this famous British shell case. The case is in nice condition nicely clean still retains most of its shiny brass colour with no damage but with a bit of discolour but even the inside is fairly clean and has all its original markings on the bottom of it including the date 1st December 1916 and on the primer all the maker markings are there and clear to see. The case was found on the Somme a very nice condition this would have been fired during the later battles on the Somme battlefield of 1916-1918 on the western front.
