    Value of WWII British 6 Pounder APDS projectile in US is over $500

    One just sold on GunBroker for approx. $550 with the wrong case - US M23A1. There are two more up for sale from the same collection. It was in nice condition with all its original paint and markings. At least two people though it was worth this much.

    Just hope no one bids on the casing I want from the same dealer. I need at least two more of 'em.

    Second one sold for over $560. One more to go. There was a new bidder in the mix. That makes three who believe that is the market price.

    I wonder if the "Broad Arrow" ink stamp was original to the M23 casings?

    Makes me think of this opportunity I passed on. I did buy manage to get two 2 pdr projectiles but communication was difficult so I didn't try for any of the APDS projectiles as I already had two.

    Well, it's not only the projectiles that's a problem, next come the shellcases with the high crimp (at the casemouth instedad of 15mm lower for the rest of the types) that are very difficult to obtain.

    How are you going to remove the tungsten core without seriously and visably damaging the projectile?

    Well, the base just unscrews on the one I have which is missing the core and is not damaged in any way ..................
    There were a number of them missing the cores - all came from the same source (yes - there was a barrel full of tungsten cores).
