Bwana Posted April 2, 2021 Report Share Posted April 2, 2021 Any artillery experts out there that can help me ID a couple of cases? The first one is 28.5" tall x 7.5" wide (mouth). It has some markings as shown in the pictures. The second is still uncleaned and is 22.5" tall x 3.5" wide (roughly - at the mouth). There are some stenciled markings and some feint stamped markings that I can try to pull out of needed. These were some of the cases I purchased as a child in Libyan junkyards (the big ones my folks bought). They would weigh them and sell them for scrap value. We used to take them to a radiator repair shop that had a vat of acid where they could be dipped to clean them up. The smaller one here is still uncleaned. Not planning on selling - just curious after all these years to find out what I have. We used to buy helmets at the junkyard too. By the late 70s the German helmets had already been picked over. Got some US, Italian and British helmets. I will post more shells if there is someone here who can help ID them. Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
