    Unknown 90 mm case

    Found two of these, one dated 1966 the other 1967.

    Total length of case : 351 mm

    Could it be a blank ?

    Andy, the two rings appear to have increased the diameter of the case neck, which would prevent the case from chambering. I think the rings are therefore a trench art decoration, and if they are, then the crimping is probably also a later decoration by someone using the case as a vase.

    The case might be from an Eland armoured car.
    Wanted: Baton/Irritant rounds (inert) and associated items, .700 NE (inert) and boxes (empty), .32-40 cartridge boxes (empty), WW2 British shotgun cartridge boxes (empty), Greener Police Gun cartridge boxes (empty). Message me if you have any of these items for sale/trade.
