    Value depends all on status. Can you read the markings on the cartridge? in europe i guess between 250-350 euro. In the US?

    How did you get this round? I see that you also have the Container for the Gaine... was it submerged all this time in its case?

    I have to adjust the value. Since it's a brass case, which is rare, 350+ euro i guess.

    Do you have more of them?

    Funny that you have the gaine cup and not the fuse- ususally it's the other way around... you need to locate an AZ23 fuse, and a C/12 primer to 'complete' the round.
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    Thumbs up Re: German uboat ammo

    What's even more unusual is that you were able to unscrew the baseplug from this baseplug round... these are usually so hard to get off it takes a hydraulic press to get them off....

    Where did this come from.... the Keil pen boats?
