    They are very scarce as I have only ever had two. However, there is YouTube video of a guy in the US who pulled about two hundred out of a river. He cleaned them up good by boiling them in a vat of wax.

    I had one that came from a ww2 ammo dump in Surrey, should never had sold it! 75mm US rounds are rare as hell in the UK which is strange as they made so many. Interesting link, wonder if he sold any and how much for. Tig
    Always seeking British flares and 2" mortar rounds.

    I have not seen any evidence that he has been selling these in the US. He is sitting on at least $20,000 in projectiles - maybe double that.
