This is a rare to find Russian made brass 75mm shell case for the lend lease Sherman tank used by the Russia Army from 1944-1945 . The case is complete with no major damage other the a split in the top when it was fired and scrape marks on the bottom from firing as well the case does not retain its shiny original brass colour it has discoloured from being buried also with a few small dents it still has its stamps and markings on the bottom not very clear to see but not that easy to make out what they all mean it is in very nice condition for a battlefield recovered case and a rare one from the battlefield. The case was recovered on the Seelow heights battle of berlin April 1945.The case comes with a A5 laminated information card with pictures.
This battle is often incorporated into the Battle of the Oder-Neisse. The Seelow Heights was where some of the most bitter fighting in the overall battle took place, but it was only one of several crossing points along the Oder and Neisse rivers where the Soviets attacked. The Battle of the Oder-Neisse was itself only the opening phase of the Battle of Berlin.
The result was the encirclement of the German 9th Army and the Battle of Halbe.
