Interested in WWI history well then this is a good find.  This exceptional  WWI signed Trench Art - by by Soldier-John Simballa was carefully crafted on an Inert Artillery Shell stamped "37-85", PDPs 220 9 16".   The artwork on the shell says "St. Mihiel 1918, CO.K. 132nd Infantry, 33rd Div." This has been in our store for over 20 years and stored in a display cabinet.  It is a beautiful piece of art and equally beautiful piece of history.  Always love a signed piece from a soldier in the war.

Features of the Trench Art:

  • Condition: Excellent 
  • Approximate Size: 6.5" high x 1.75" around
  • On the nose of the shell is printed "L 633 16"

NOTE: Over the years we have collected items with historical interest.  The majority of our memorabilia is war related and we do not wish to offend anyone.  We do not support or condone war but believe that historical items can remind us of our history, teach us about specific moments in time and hopefully prevent us from reliving any man-made horrific times in history.  Any items we offer are intended for collectors of memorabilia and hopefully will be used for educational purposes.    All of our collectables come from our own private collection via many X-service personnel and government auctions and have included Nazi party, Holocaust, Allgemeine and Waffen SS, Luftwaffe, Kriegsmarine, Kamikaze, Japanese, Australian, U.S., British items, etc.  We should not forget our past but should endeavor to learn from its mistakes. It is our hope we never forget those that have died as a result of war.  May god protect them.
