I'll be a bit OFF, but I don't want to open a new thread just for this...
I got this Stalingrad relic just today (mostly by accident, as I was bored over at the German ebay, and saw this with no bids) - not quite sure what this is - looks nice and heavy thou'
Also, is in good condition for a relic - especially from an area with so much "history" behind it - only some minor rusting (not too deep), mostly artificial rust, plenty of paint (looks like panzer grau) and some yellowish-green sprayed paint (maybe camo?) with the markins of: "15 cm Gr 18".
I think it has probably has something to do a 15cm 18k canon - but I'm not sure if this is a part of the canon itself, or maybe something for the ammo (?)
So if anyone could tell me what this is, I'll go do some research...
THX in advance!
PS: It's being shipped from Volgograd, so at least 3-4 weeks until I receive it - I will only do a dash of cleaning on this one - mostly just a quick shower in the bath...I'll update when it arrives.
