    Default German 77mm shell

    Hi Guys, as I have mentioned before, I don't collect WW1 per se, but I cannot resist a bargain. I picked up this shell case for 4 at a vintage vehicle show. Later I bought the restored head and fuse at Beltring for 15. It makes a nice display peice.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks guys. The shell head still retains some of the ball bearing shrapnel pieces. Very evil looking....

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade, super piece ! in great condition, I generally use the 77' case to display my Pickelhaubes on ! I have one complete 77' I show here, yours makes mine look rather "scabby"!.....
    Prost ! STEVE.
