With two small loops & a safety chain. Good, used condition, usual marks/ware etc, with nice patina, - see scans.

*Translation from German Wikipedia http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grabenarbeit;

The term Grabenarbeit / Grave Work ( also: grave art ) refers to a reworked item from  diverted ammunition supply. Especially in the position and Grave struggles of First World War many soldiers took advantage of waiting times to produce souvenirs from spent ammunition, for family members at home.

These Militaria are now collector's items. In most cases, they were Bullet casings with Calibers of 40 mm and Cartridges with diameters up to 150 mm, fashioned into rings , bracelets , pendants, shot glasses, lighters, ashtrays, cigarette boxes, candle holders or vases. Frequently, shell fragments have been processed - mainly to knives or letter openers .
