    Good Luck..
    As I am finding , In life we begin having the Blissful happiness & the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through true faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or true Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil.

    It is an artillery projectile, but from the World War One or Two era, definitely not from the civil war era. The slanted parallel ridges on the brass band are called rifling marks, and they mean your projectile has been fired. It is the class of artillery projectile called APCBC (Armor Piercing, Capped, Ballistic-Capped). Yours is missing its cap, which is a "missile nosecone shaped" metal cover attached to the projectile's nose to make it more aerodynamically efficient than the flat nose would be. Very similar ones are shown at the following website, although your exact version isn't. Scroll about halfway down the webpage to the APCBC-projectiles section.

    Most of that type are Solid-Shot (non-explosive). But some had a fuze in the projectile's flat base. I need to see some closeup photos of your projectile's base to tell whether it is a Solid-Shot or an explosive shell.
