    Default Help !

    Good morning Gents,
    I have some things that I would eventually like to sell but I need some help identifying and finding the value of.
    Two are ww II era INERT bazooka rockets, and some large MG (aircraft perhaps)cartridges. If anyone can direct me to where to look I would appreciate it. I can send pictures of what I have to help identify. Please e-mail me directly
    tango1niner@yahoo.com
    bottom rocket is modern as well as a few of the cartridges
    smallest cartridge on right is .50 cal.

    thanks
    Anthony

    If you have a look at this thread....

    http://warrelics.eu/forum/ordinance-...adstamps-5718/

    ....you will see some of your cartridges and what the stamps mean.

    #3 is a standard 20mm cannon shell as used in British aircraft in WW2.

    #6 is a standard .50cal as used in American WW2 aircraft and also as heavy MGs on vehicles.

    #5 is also a 20mm of a different type to #3.

    All of these are not worth much really. They are very common.

    The others are also relatively common and of no great value, the 30mm probably worth the most.

    If the larger projectiles you have are originals and not repros they will be worth more but they are not my area of expertise.

    Hope that helps.

    #5 is a German WWII 2cm MG151/20 aircraft cannon round- a fired case (likely) with a new, solid training projectile added.

    The casings and belt links were not just dropped in flight but ended up in a bin below the weapon, so they could be reclaimed; a portion of the cases had these solid, gray heads (with little arrows stamped on them pointing forward) added to them for use as training devices.

    I have one, but bought it probably 17 years ago so have no idea what they're worth today; it's probably not terribly much since they're just TP rounds...
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
