    honestly, this is not my field of great knowledge, so i can't help you with that... but i do think that it definately has potential as a ww2 casing.

    It would appear to be Russian. The "37r" is the date for 1937. "r" signifies the year in Russian.

    I reckon this is most likely a Russian 76.2mm artillery shell case base. Just a guess but id certainly agree with Adrian. Regards, Tim.
