    I am told this came from a train gun in Germany WW1

    The writing reads Patronenfabrik Karlsruhe VII 214 1918 with the Crown with a M on top

    Overlal decent shape...has some tarnish etc, as photos show. Writing is still visible. I would say it's about 2.5 or 3 feet tall .

    I want to know the Value or rarity please...I was asking $85 , but I may be too low?...

    Hi there,

    I think better photo's are required here, in focus. The crucial part is the base with all the stamped details to determine what calibre it is. My thinking is it will be for a naval gun, some of these were mounted on rail bogies. Any ACCURATE measurements in millimetres of the case length and business end diameter would also be a great help.

    Check out the Kaisers Bunker web site. He has a excellent section on Imperial artillery shells and lots of photos.
