    Default M16 and M18 Shells Reissued to 1940 Specs

    Here are 4 pretty good examples of WWI shells used during WWII - reissued to the WH during the War to 1940 specs. The first 2 are standard shells, but the maker stamps are covered in paint. I don't know if we know who made the M18 ventless shells and this one is unmarked. All three of these are size 66. The final piece is an ECO, obviously an ET64. If anyone has the time and inclination, please add more "reissues" to this thread. Jim G.

    Must say I never saw a ventless M 18. If I had a few or even one to post Jim other than my ECO (which I posted already) I would

    I scored this ET66 Shell from a contact in Bautzen, Germany recently...I discovered that the Liner is from a postwar East German Fireman's Helmet - which I'll be replacing with an Original M31 Liner...Looks Great on the Shelf despite its Imperfections....

    Are most of these decals ET style? They all look similar to me.
    Thanks, Nick

    Hi Dave, The ventless M18 was from Robbie Wilson's collection. I have another one as well, also a SD WH, but the decal is nearly completely gone. Regarding your SD ECO, please add it, it is one of the best, if not the best SDHeer ECO I have ever seen. Cheers, Jim G.

    No...his first is an Ed Stracht decal or a Peiniger or a damaged ET. Can't tell, second is an ET type, third & fourth are Huber Jordan

    Hi Dave, That ECO is as good as it gets, thanks for adding it. Regarding the decals, I can't tell if the one on the M16 is a Stracht or a Peiniger, in hand it is clear it isn't an ET. I agree with your assessment of the other 3. Again, your ECO is simply the best. Jim G.
