    Found this today for .79 cents at goodwill. My question is.......WHAT is this? It is a tank I know. Was it a Cologne bottle?

      Looks like a Renault tank?

      inkwell?

      It's kind of a hybrid Renault FT and a British Mark I tank. It's got the Renault turret, the lozenge treads and gun sponsons of a Mark I. I'd guess an inkwell also.

      dav2,mcheconi and Toyrebel.....Thanks for the information. The material that was in the opening was dirt and came out. It makes sense that it could be an inkwell. That is what we will call it for now:)
