    What would you know about victory? I killed a she-wolf in her den, armed with only a knife. I escaped the Caughnawaga Indians who sought to burn me alive. And, I was the sole survivor of a shipwreck at the Battle of Havana. So you'll excuse me if I choose not to follow your advice." ―Israel Putnam speaking to a Continental Army officer at the Battle of Bunker Hill.

    Early 2cm FlaK ( one seems to be dated '38 or 9, the other possibly '40 ? ). Condition is rather poor, they look to have been ground-dug and then polished. I'm assuming the one with the complete primer is deactivated (?).

    I just picked up 2 of these - 1943 ones, with lacquered steel shells for 20 EU / each.
    (Not sure if that was an OK price, but not an item I see too often)

    Cheers,

    The shells are not too uncommon to come by... The heads are a bit hard to find! Nice ones anyway!!

    The top ones are not ground dug, that green stuff is uneven copper oxidation not coherent with soil oxidation. They look nice.

    E20 in that condition is good : I'd have grabbed them !

    They had been in a rather unattractive piece of trench art. The bases had been inside apiece of wood and had been in an attic or barn in the north country for decades. I am dropping them off at my gunsmith to make sure they are safe. I know all the power inside is gone and the heads had been drilled on the sides, but as for the fuse and the primer, he can render it safe or ditch it if its to much of a problem
