    Nice one! Are you sure it's Flak and not an Anti-Tank Projectile instead? Just wondering if there's a visible difference...On second thought, by 1944 they had already gotten rid of the 3.7cm PAK, lol...Well done as always, Rossi!
    cheers, Glenn

    Nice indeed....the 'belted' shellcase indicates a Flak round ( PaK were smooth-sided ).....

    Thanks Martin & Glenn...Did a little more digging here on our awesome forum and found a prior thread...When time allows & I go pick this one up I am going to get some better pictures of it and the markings. I will repost then.

    What info do you have on these Flak 18 shells?

    Glenn & Martin,

    Is this schematic I found below and shell casing photo for the 3.7cm flak round I am showing above? Looks like it is with the single brass band as the one I am looking into. Glenn...Not sure how good your German is but I believe it is much better than mine. My Oma would not be happy with me that I have let it all slip. Thoughts?
