Brass shell case (Berndorf 1910 R) Probably WWI?

Recommended Posts

Felipe

Hi everyone, this brass shell has been in my family for many years and I'm interested to know more about its origin. I would like to identify the type of shell, the type of cannon that could have fired such shell (navy or artillery) and the cannon's brand. What does the letter R stands for? I assume Berndorf 1910 is the place and year of manufacture. Also, was it fired in WWI? By which army? Are they rare or common?

Made by Berndorfer Metallwaren-Fabrik of Austria.

 

Could you give us the metric dimensions: length, width across the neck and width across the base.
