    The seller wants about 85 USD for this item, it's purpose is display item only, but all info would be great!

    Should I go for this or pass? Is the price to expensive or right for this type of shell casing?
    Thanks!

    it's a big shell so i think the price is ok if not a bit over the top! personaly i would not purchase it because with that money i could buy something ww2 related, but it's your pocket!

    Ok, thanks.
    First one I have seen in the marked here in the country and would probably cost a lot to ship one, would anyways look great on the shelf.

    One more question, about how old is it? My guess is about 10 years, but I just like to collect knowledge

    Nice shell, and it would look good in any collection. I'm biased, I collect shell cases.

    Looks a nice shell, great for storing umbrellas and walking sticks.

    The Germans haven't used the 105mm gun armed Leopard 1 tanks for many years (the entirely different Leopard 2 uses a 120mm gun)-the 105mm cal guns are too small for modern tank warfare-your shell case would be 20 or more years old.

    Thanks for so many answers! Because it's not that new and I like German history I would now definitely go for it!

    I'm thinking it may be from 1993 going by the markings?

    A word of caution, I got a friend in Canada to send me something similar a few years back... It cost a fortune in postage and nearly gave the postman a hernia...

    Thats why I think I can might as well buy this and meet the guy irl instead of get a shell shipped internationally, would cost high-explosive cash. :P
