I know Jardy wants the round identifying but can anyone translate the text in the above post please
It appears to be the APCBC-HE-T M61 Projo for the 75mm Sherman, missing the Ballistic and AP cap and rotating band. The three indentations on the ogive are where the AP cap crimps on. I have one just like it with rotating band.

I'm sure DJ Harms has a sectioned one to show. Yes, it is here:


The one discrepancy that I see with the unidentified piece, is that it doesn't appear to have as many crimping cuts for the piercing cap to crimp into, as the examples I've shown.

Yes, 75mm Sherman U.S. pattern. The round you show in your photos has two rotating bands, evidently an after-war design or a product of another country, possibly designed for higher velocity. If your projectile came from Belgium, it was most likely "Battle of the Bulge" related.
