    5.7 cm Maxim-Nordenfelt Case

    I bought this back at tankfest 2017 labelled as a A7V shell. Presumably that was just a gimmick to make it sell and presumably it was fired from a regular cannon. But i want help to see if this truly is a 5.7cm maxim-nordenfelt shell.
    The markings POLTE MAGDEBURG , APRIL 1916 , 3 , SP252.

    If it measures 57mm across the neck, 68mm across the base and 225mm long, then yes it is.

    I’m after one of these, so let me know if you’d be interested in selling it.
