This was a popular late war and post war souvenir item in Germany.

The copper driving band from an artillery round has been fashioned into a decorative bracelet for a sweetheart. The band has an applied black enameled iron cross flanked by oak leaves.

The latch is intricate, works well and still retains the chain.
