    I am not one of the experts ( they might also comment ) however the markings are correct for Collis Metalwerke,so I would not be afraid to purchase it.....Pete.

    Hi Pete,

    Doesn't the '28' designation on the base suggest that this is a naval (Kreigsmarine) round? It looks just like a Bofors case to me.

    In German naval use, the gun was designated the 4 cm Flak 28
