Actually found this last week in the junk stall of the Indoor Market in our town. When i looked at it i could see from the visible headstamping that it was from a weapon of 76mm calibre and 1943 dated and that from the M26 stamping must be US manufactured. So i ask the geezer how much he wanted for it and he says "Oh, its not mine its me mates and i dont know and will have to ask him". He then asks me if im back later and i say "no". Fast forward one week to today and i go back down there and the guy that was there last week wasnt there, and hes got a lil old lady running the gaff for him. So i ask again how much the case is and the old lady doesnt know cos he hasnt priced it again (temper slowly rising by this stage lol!), you are the third person to ask that question explains the lady and she says "oh sod it its a fiver"! So i finally get it and after checking sure enough its a US 76mm High Velocity round case as used in some Sherman Tank and Anti Tank guns. Only pain in the butt is the vandalism in the form of solder on the bottom obscuring some of the headstamping. It had a firepoker inside which i threw into the River Avon on the way home, so it must have been used as a fireside ornament in the past. Now the question is is it worth a fiver?? Never seen one of these HV 76mm cases before but ive seen loads of the shorter 75's. Regards, Tim.
