Found 3 of them in a box of my grandpa's. I'm assuming it's from WWII, if not no clue where he got it. None of the primers are struck and it appears the "charge"? Was removed from the top.

“37/85” is French designation for 37mm , Modele 1885 (Gun)
"37/85, Hotchkiss, , going back to 1871, and up to WW II.

They were used for anti everything

Awesome, thank you Robert and KClark! I was thinking 37mm but didn't look like the round I'm used to.
