    75mm DRILL Fake ?

    Hello,
    I found this picture on the web. Round dated 44.
    Very good condition and strange shape.
    I don't know this model, is it a mock up ?
    Regards

    It looks like a 77mm round for a Comet tank.

    Not 77mm, that has a distinct shoulder to the case. Looks like a 75mm with M18 case, that has a barely defined shoulder. As to whether it is genuine or not, I couldn't say.

    Just realised it was sold not 15 miles from me, sadly four years ago!

    This one looks similar. It was previously sold by a UK dealer, not sure when it was sold.
