    This is a part of a group of items recovered in 2022 from an old German ammunition bunker site which was blown up by the Russians after it was captured this is why most of the items are battle-damaged. This is a German 10.5cm steel shell case fired by SK/32 naval anti-aircraft gun This German complete 10.5cm armour piercing shell fired by SK/32 naval anti-aircraft gun used as anti tank gun late war by the Germans in land during ground battles in the anti-tank role similar to the famous 88mm gun that was converted to the same role .The projectile still with most of its original colour and ballistic cap it does have a small rust hole in the tip but is wonderfully clean and lovely example it is empty and inert and goes in and out of the shell case perfectly well. The case is steel made it is in relic but solid condition and has some of its maker markings that can be seen on the bottom of the case including dated 1944 and waffen stamp and complete with its primer dated 1943 it has some rust holes and damage mostly down one side with larger hole the rare bit it still has remains of its original brass wash the case has been very well cleaned it is perfect to display or and a rare one for any collection as this gun was not made in the numbers of other German heavy guns and being a Naval gun it is rarer.
