Souvenir Cartridge

by

“This bullet was found on the roof of Kuwait International Hotel where the invaders camped during their last days. Today, the KIH presents you this limited edition souvenir for “GOOD LUCK” just as the hotel survived the war without major damage. November 1991″

Found that tucked away in my home office desk. I think it’s a .50 caliber Browning NATO casing, but I wasn’t smart enough to photo the head stamp before I mailed it off to a veteran friend.

Above: Kuwait International Hotel after occupation by Iraqi forces in 1991. Much of the interior was burned out as these pictures show. More on cartridge casings here.
