A couple likely hits...

by Doc Nickel

It doesn't appear to be American, those all seem to be much larger and more complex.

However, there's a couple of old Soviet designs that bear a striking similarity. One example- second photo from the bottom, middle sample- "Russian 82mm HE". Second example- middle photo a bit more than halfway down. Five sizes of shell that all appear to share a similar style fuse.

Chances are you don't have to worry about it, it's almost certainly from an expended shell. Or possibly from a round that was fired but didn't detonate, and the thin sheetmetal shell eventually rusted away.

If the latter, there's a nonzero chance there's still some small amount of priming compound in there, but even if so, chances are it's seen so much weathering most of the chemical is gone.

Can you see into or through the pipe nipple?
