    75mm Schneider - Greece - Sigma - 1915 / 1936 / 1940 ?? help

    Hello, I found this schneider case some time ago.

    Total length is 165 mm , is this original or cut down?

    I found a page with the same shell with length 190 mm here:
    https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/ww1-france-greece-75mm-schneider-shell-case-bank

    And also a similar one with lengt also 165 mm here:
    https://www.greatwarforum.org/topic/...artridge-case/

    There are some markings in paint on the case are these dates 1936 and/or 1940 as well ??

    It is made in France for export?

    I think it is French made export for Greece (or a re-used WW1 case, seen many times for Greece, but head stamp seems made in one go). I am not sure if the length is original. There is a French 75x165R90.10 mm, normally these Greek cases are as you mentioned of the type 75x190R90.10 mm. So hard to be sure as the rim diameter is the same. I think the year is 1936.
    Ignorance is bliss.
