    I need to look at things closer. It was not two 57mm cases, it was one and a 75mm WWI case. The "shell" is made of wood but has something wrapped around it. I may remove that and repaint it. I didn't include that in the photos, it's in the earlier ones.

    I would say you have a very good eye. It does appear to be one complete unfired Boys anti-tank round and a fired 13mm Germanicon anti-tank round. One is easy with the headstamp, a Madsen 23mm

    I can't answer any questions until later as I will be at work.

    Have at the rest:

    Nice pile, good catch. We'll get them all identified eventually. Yes, there's a couple really good ones and several that I wouldn't mind. Could never get them across the border now though. Maybe the empties...

    The Boys is still live. So is the red plastic one. All the rest are inert.

    I saw that, thought it was Germanicon until the headstamp. One of the ultra high velocity attempts.

    Maybe this can make things easier. They are not in the same order as the photos but the headstamps and other markings are listed. If I don't have anything in the block, I don't know what goes there. The case height may not be perfect, I'm using an old wooden ruler. I'm going to start looking them up by markings. I suspect the dummy rounds are mostly US and browningautorifleicon believes the red one is Norwegianicon.
