    Hello all,
    An interesting find on yesterdays NVBMB fair. These sabots were sold as scrap. They are all 35mm. Only the second one from the left looks like an in service specimen. The one on the left is quite long. The left two are a single petal each, the right three are complete sets. All fired. Has anybody seen these before and have more information?
    Thanks,

    It has been awhile since we last talked Dominique!

    Funnily enough I happened to be able to locate myself a nice Israeli 60mm casing late last year. It’s currently with a friend in the US but an APFSDS projectile is my goal to completely it! Very nice collection as well, trying not to drool LOL

    Yes, It's been a while. I hope all is well.
    Congrats on the 60mm case, it seems they are as rare as the projectiles. I have seen a HE dummy for sale in the UK, but the price is too high for me to consider buying it just for the case. I'll just have to keep looking.

    After a long pause due to the Covid situation, we were finally able to get together again as collectors (with the appropriate safety measures).
    So I was able to pick up all the rounds I had bought from other collectors in the past months.
    The latest additions to the collection:
    Two Swiss 20x110 Hispano AP (white and black one)
    Two Swedish 20x110 Hispano AP (One with and one without the little crown)
    40L60 M81A1 AP-T
    40L70 AP
    20pdr APDS core
    90mm HVAP-T core
    A British 120mm PRAC DS in excellent condition
    British 120mm L23A1 APFSDS penetrator.

    If I have made any mistakes in naming these, please let me know.

    Are you sure the 40mm L/70 AP-T is really L/70? It has the rotating band of an L/60 projectile.

    No, I am not sure, I was doubtful myself. Probably should be L60. Someone probably put it in the wrong case.
