    This is beyond the age of my collecting but thought it was a nice example to share. This 37 MM round was built in Paris and has US acceptance marking. I believe the US purchased many machine guns and cannons from Allied armies as we did not have much going into WWI. I think this is for the mounted Hotchkiss gun. The US acceptance marking is normal to my understanding. This is inert except for the primer. Good example to compare to. All opinions are welcome and appreciated. Thank you for looking.

    That's a real nice looking example John!

    Goldilocks! Just the right size
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Nice one John out of my league, but go on give the primer a knock to see what happens?

    Those primers are too dirty and then I would wreck a good looking example.

    I have an identical example, I believe many of these were made safe post war and sold as souvenirs on the Somme.
