    Default Carboot find - 11th April 2010

    Hi all

    Well my first carboot of the season and it was a good one. Quite a few bits on the boot this weekend, but unfortunately most people knew what they had, (for example a WW2 German mess tin 'set' with all the right stamps and marks, dated 1940, guy wanted 80 ), but one either didn't know what he had or just wanted rid.

    Either way, I got it off him for 3.

    A lovely 1943 dated (base of headstamp but quite feint), 25 pounder shell case to go with my others



    It had a couple of dimps in the top and a couple of areas of the rim had turned over, but I've fixed it up and given it a good polishing.

    It's a beauty



    ....and a steal at three quid

    Hope you like it.

    Cheers guys

    Nice find Steve, I don't buy many cases because the wife says I already have enough.
    I only have about 150 and she's moaning.

    Pffff....women are such spoil-sports

    Nice collection mate I see loads of trench art cases at the car boot but I only collect them in original condition

    There's a LOT of work gone into some of the ones you have !

    Hi, Zephyr !

    Wow ! A huge collection of shell casings ! !
    Love the Webley air pistol you have there.
