    I’m having no success identifying this shell case. It’s 118mm long, and about 77mm in diameter at the open end. It doesn’t appear to have been cut down, but that is a possibility. Does anyone recognize this case?

    At first glance the 3 circles looked like the Tokyo Arenseal maker marks but looking closer they are not the same.

    I unfortunately can't help with the exact model but the marking in question is for the German manufacturer Krupp:

    "The three rings were the symbol for Krupp, based on the Radreifen – the seamless railway wheels patented by Alfred Krupp" (Wikipedia)

    German Krupp manufactured 77mm Cart case. It's profile does not look right so I suspect it has been cut down, probably with the intension of creating a piece of 'trench art'.
