    The cannon I believe it is for is the Canon de 75 mle GP III, wich was a rebarreled german 77mm fk16

    Not the sort of thing you find every day. Might make a good wood chopping block, which judging by the marks on the metal, someone has already thought of that.

    The back of the breech block has seen some use as an Anvil, but some of the damages seems to be from explosives, and if this turns out to be from the belgian 75mm it match the story I've got.
