    The base has seen better days and you can make out the stamps if holding the round.

    Hi Waffy.....thanks for that, I do love to see ww2 tank ordnance, and I think the good old mainstay of the German forces, the 7,5cm Kwk40 of the Pz IV is always welcome.
    Obviously I don't know what you paid, but it looks like you've done ok. Pop in the C/22 you picked up recently, and you've got a nice round.

    As for the case, I think its perfectly acceptable. Its almost impossible to find a German case in perfect condition with 100% brass wash or painted coat, So since it is solid with some of the brass wash left as well as headstamp, I think you've done well.

    As for the markings, personally, I'd tend to just leave it all well alone.

    I might be tempted to a short phosphoric acid dip, if rust is looking like its taking hold...usually doesn't remove paint if you're careful. (NB will dissolve aluminium almost immediately though).

    Now all you need is a nice Kwk40 HE or HEAT, or better still Kwk42 or Kwk43 :-)

    Rich

    Thanks Rich for that informative reply.I shall have a think and will run with some of your ideas.
    In the meantime i will give it a rub down with the old WD spray.

    Hopefully those KT rounds are sorted later on this year,so keep in touch!.

    regards

    waff
