    In that condition a 1000.00 . Cleaned up it most certainly would fetch 1200,00 to 1500.00
    Just make sure it is inert. I wouldn't want you blowing anything important off.

    It looks like a Pzgr. 39 projectile- is the space in the base for the bursting charge large or small in diameter? Could also be a Pzgr. 41, which is Flak only. What's the primer like? A C/12 means Flak, a C/22 means Tiger (if it's definitely the original primer and not replaced by someone).

    It's strange- I don't see a seam where the ballistic cap meets the projectile cap- the nose looks like one solid piece...
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    Okay perhaps not so weird there's no seam- I found a couple of other photos of Pzgr. 39 projectiles with no obvious seam, even a cutaway that clearly shows there is a sheet ballistic nose atop a solid cap. So it's a 39 for sure then- but the projectile doesn't dictate the gun that used it- the exact same projectile could be fired from the flak or the tank gun. The primer tells the story...
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
