Hi there, Very nice set of items youve got there and well done. I reckon the 75mm's are of same type used in the US Sherman Tank in WW2. Dummy rounds were often used to train crews in fast and efficient loading of the guns etc. Could be wrong but im sure they are WW2 US 75mm Sherman dummies. Regards, Tim.
I really hope so, that's what the gentleman at the antique store advertised it as!

Here is what is stamped on the head of the dummy 75mm shell:

The primer is marked: U.S. 18 1425-284

Around the primer is marked: 75mm GUN (FLAMING BOMB LOGO) LOT 1272 - 19 E.M.C.

Also, very faintly marked is: OT P9512 - 5 8
