    75mm shell casing

    Any ideas what a 75mm shell casing from 1944 would be worth? Thanks for any help?

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.

    There were so many types of cases for the 75mm Italianicon, Germanicon, Frenchicon, US, but it would want to be in very good condition with patina no dents or trench art, not something that has been brasso'ed to within an inch of its life.
    Depends on the market and who is bidding anything from $50-60 Aud up to couple of hundred $'s Aud.

    That's a clear enough pic...you don't need to send me any. That one will do nicely... The 75mm cartridge case M5A1 was made for use with the 75mm Pack Howitzer M1icon (later redesignated M116).

    Here's one sold on Icollector recently... WWII U.S. 75MM M5A1 BRASS CASING


    Not that expensive. If it had been the long 75mm for the Sherman it could have been over $100...

    U.S M18 75mm X 350mm case

    Info from another site ~ The 75mm M18 is the same size (75 x 350mm) as the Frenchicon 75, but is actually the standard U.S. 75mm gun cartridge case, either as a wheel mounted field gun, or in the various tanks using 75mm guns (M3 Grant/Lee or M4 Sherman, etc).

    Here is a pic of my M18 case stamped normal which I gather was for the charge loaded the BB Co head stamp I could not find any information on.
    Pic #3 I have put it against my French 75mm QF case (Rt side) and they look pretty close but I'm not sure the French round could be fired in the American piece & vice versa.

    303 Round for scale.

    Sherman tank

    Here is a photo of a US Sherman tank extractor for the 75mm case. i removed it from the breech block as I thought it was interesting. Tanks were going to range for targets

    RCS do you know or could you identify please the manufacturer for my 75mm made by BB Co.

    I like stuff like that having collected little pieces odd ball gear over the years.

    Cinders, I wish that some information was available to help you - but just do not know at this time.

    Another example: of all the Thompson sub machineguns manufacture during WW2 there is not any
    record of serial numbers by month or year available.
