She's a relic, but I agree with Rob.

This is one of the few ground-dug apparant battle relic M-18 cut outs I've seen, with pretty convincing long term underground exposure corrosion. It would be nice to know where it was uncovered and when, which would add to its history.

In the middle 1970's I recall handling a number of M-16 relics which had been recently uncovered near Ft. Vaux in the Verdun sector. After almost sixty years in that soil those examples were more heavily corroded than this one with more extensive compression fractures of the thin shells.

Looks like a normal above ground rusty relic. If it had been underground it would have traces of the Somme clay or be rusted away. IMO . Rob
