Went with a friend to check out an old cabin site, but it didn't pan out. Stopped in a field on the way to the truck, hoping to nab a military button. That didn't pan out either, but did find several mortar tails, then, to our surprise an intact mortar! ( Minus the business end ) I know nothing about them, but my friend does, so he has everything. I gave him the 9 tail fins that I dug, as well as fuses and shrapnel. Fun day!

That is CRAZY!!! Probably wasn't live when you found it, but you never know, as I've heard of live ordinance being found before. Did the signal blow your ears off? Any idea on the age? Amazing find, bud Beer

The signal was alot like a large copper. High tone, 09:41 on the etrac. They are WWII. The date stamp on the nice mortar is 1942. That one was sticking straight up and down. That's probably why it still has the original paint in it. The business end is gone, so it's safe.

Haha thanks guys. These ones weRe found in a practice range at a wwii military training camp. The next range over was for the real stuff. These 2 may have been smoke mortars.

So the bomb squad is on their way to my buddy's house Chuckle

Haha. The scary part is that they cultivate blueberries in that field. They were barely in the ground. They have a tractor that burns the fields every 2 years and mows it on the third year. They are lucky they didn't detonate it. The rusty one is a dropped mortar with the protective cap still on it. It's not a smoke or training mortar. ..it's the real deal! !
