    Default French 75mm

    Brought this one the other day and is what I believe to be a French 75mm QF shell case am I correct in this summation it is pictured next to a No.2 2Pdr with a 303 cartridge for scale. D E C meaning?

    I gather the 18 is the year it also has a very slight taper starting @3" from the case mouth I.D 75mm OAL 347mm Cost me $40/Au from that site, which I think was a steal.
    I am leaving the coating on it as its not to bad and getting it off will ruin what patina is underneath.

    Managed to get the I.D of the shell case;

    DE C = Canon 75 de Campagne (75mm field gun)
    ATE = made in Toulouse
    345L 18 = 345th batch of 1918
