This was purchased from a veterans estate in South Carolina about 15 years ago.
The shell has been handlettered in a professional manner to commemorate the end of WW2:
"The dawn of Peace was announced, at our, Most advanced Air Base, IE SHIMA, By the firing of this shell at reveille, V.J. Day (3 SEPT. 1945) By the, 337th Air Service Group"
Ie Shima was also the site of the plane transfers for the Japanese Peace Delegation that ended the war.
Thanks for looking.
