Can you say anything about the value?
British 25prd. Value about £15 to £20.
i would say possibly a bit more because it isn't your normal run of the mill item possibly a max of £30 if very lucky
(i say that because trench art has been slowly increasing over the years)
Very nice OrangSoldier...Definitely british (Broad Arrow)...
Sorry to disappoint re value - these are surprisingly common on French markets - don't usually bother with them at all now, as I am a collector and already have one nice example and they are never decorated - around 5 to 10 Euros regardless of whether made from WWI or WWII cases.
I agree! There is one for sale on a Belgian or Dutch forum at 25€, coming down from 35 and still not sold.
Always looking for Belgian Congo stuff!
Nice use of an old 25lber case
As the others have said, British, made in 1944, 25lber gun, (the arrow on the base of the shell denotes the 'War department' which ID's it as for use in the British military).
As for value, the only 2 I have bought were from car boot sales and both were less than 5 euros. They are very common.
Ok thanks for all the answers! I will keep it anyway... I may even use it :-P
