    Can anyone identify this German case?

    It appears to be in the 3" range, is marked Polte Magdeburg, but incredibly for a German piece of ordnance it does not identify itself!

    Possibly a mountain howitzer or other small howitzer of the time?

    Thanks,
    Walt

    Looks like 77mm from WWI. One of a bazillion that made it back to the states. I think all the AEF guys were each forced to bring one back with them. There are a lot of threads here about the 77mm projectiles. Key in 77mm in the seach box.
