    The Type 88 75 mm AA Gun (八八式七糎半野戦高射砲, Hachi-hachi-shiki nana-senti-han Yasen Koshahō?) was an anti-aircraft gun used by the Imperial Japanese Army during the Second Sino-Japanese War and World War II. It replaced the earlier Type 11 75 mm AA Gun in front line combat service, and at the time was equal in performances to any of its contemporaries in western armies[1] and was considered capable of handling any targets the Japanese army was likely to encounter on the Asian mainland. Although, it was soon overtaken by improvements in aircraft technology and was lately obsolete by 1941, it continued to be used on many fronts until the end of the war.

    That is really hard projectile to find Bill. I have found 3 cases and just picked up my fourth. This is the first one that had the primer still in it and not the empty hole.

    That's an awesome shell casing. How much would something like that be worth in today's world?

    Hard to say really but I just sold it to a fellow collector for 75.00 plus the shipping and he was very happy.
