    I am sure you are correct with Italian made case for the Skoda 75mm Model 15 mountain gun. (75x129R)
    Italy called it 75/13. Gun was used in both wars by Austro-Hung, Germany and maybe Italy?

    Thanks again for the reply Ron! Sounds correct, I assume the 1 with a dot after is a reloading mark as per German cases? Best wishes Tig.
