    Early 18 pounder Mk 1 cartridge case made by VSM.

    I'm looking for an early (1904 - 1909ish) 18 pounder mark 1 cartridge case made by VS&M. See photo for reference.

    Top price paid for a clean straight example.

    Must be a Mk 1 with the 4 x crimp grooves intact. VS&M case really preferred but would consider other makes. A 1906 case would be perfect to match the 1906 Mk 1 VS&M projectile I have.

    I'm in Australia but I will obtain a Customs import permit to make this completely legitimate with absolutely no problems or risks. (I've done this many times and it's straight-forward as I have all the necessary credentials).

    Thanks,

    Graeme

    I've had about three MK1 fired projectiles, but have never seen a casing.
