    Default Some new 8,8 Flak pieces

    Hi guys,

    just added two more German 8,8 cm anti-aircraft shell casings to my modest Flak collection. Realized I hadn't yet shown all of these so here they are - I currently have six in total, one is still stored away elsewhere. These can occasionally still be found going for 5-10 euros a piece here in Finland.

    One of the two new examples has a set of original ink stamps on the side that has survived surprisingly well, I personally haven't seen this often on Finnish-refurbished 88s.

    The complete shell was posted as a separate thread a while ago, however I thought it'd be appropriate to have it here as well. After all, "too many 88s" is not a thing...

    Thanks for taking a look!

    My oldest 8,8 with its clear stamps - acquired this many years ago as one of my first pieces of militaria.

    Nice! These are great. Wish they were more plentiful over this side of the pond. Not many vets could take one of these home as a souvenir LoL
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
