    What type is this bullet shell and how old is it?

    I found this bullet shell along the shore of the Scarborough Bluffs buried in some sand. Any idea of the origin or how old it may be? Thanks.Click image for larger version.

    I think that is a Russian 5.45 X 39 used in the AKM-74 rifle. I'm guessing 1960's to 1980's. With the crimp on the end it looks like it was a blank or a round used to fire a grenade. Gary

    Welcome to Tnet from the Durham Region chicken guy, lots of history in Scarborough,
    I grew up in Guildwood on the Scarborough Bluffs, I used to climb up and down the bluffs looking for beer bottles to return for the refund.
    I use to volunteer on the historic Cornell/Campbell Farm at Markham & Kingston Rd. in the late-1970s, I also found a lot of old bottles in the woods behind her farm.

    "This house, on the north side of Kingston Road midway between Markham Road and Eglinton Avenue, has a Scarborough Historical Society plaque near the road. William Cornell, a descendant of a Rhode Island colonist who came to America in 1636, settled here on two lakefront lots in the forest in 1799. With other pioneers he cut out Scarborough's front road, which became the Kingston Road, planted the first orchard and built the first grist and sawmill in the township. His descendants long continued to make notable contributions to the development of Scarborough. Edward Cornell was a member of the township's first municipal council in 1850."

    Best of luck to you,
