    Hi Frizzen,
    Are all the fuzes removable from the shells? If so would love to see some close up photo's of them.

    I was all proud of finally finding a German 77mm projectile in the US, then I found this thread. I have to assume frizzen has been at this since before 9/11 2001. This is the first 77mm I have found ever. I believe it to be a 1915 model HE. It has "BF 15" on the side and bottom. There are a great many cases over here, but very few projectiles. I was going to toss the case into the scap bin since it was made into trench art. But then I noticed the rust on the bottom. I did not realize the Germans did composite steel/brass cases in WWI. It was all rusty when I got it. As far as I can tell, the fuse is correct for HE as well as shrapnell. I had to heat up the fuse to get it off after letting it soak in oil for a week. I still need to apply yellow paint judging from frizzen's examples. Bruce was kind enough to supply me with a nice brass case if anyone wants this steel/brass case.
