    This is a German 3.7cm KwK 36 PzGr kps armour piercing projectile used in the standard 3.7cm brass or steel case fired by the panzer 3 tank and in the pak 36 anti tank gun. The head has some original black paintwork and lots of original colour with its brass driving band which has maker marks and waffen stamped but the nice rare bit is the maker markings and dated 1937 which are partly clear to see on the bottom the head which is completely empty and inert and is in lovely condition for a battlefield recovered projectile which some light damage from being fired which has been very well cleaned and is perfect for display or any collection and a rare item to find in this condition. The projectile was recovered from near Bialystok which was a Russian pocket of resistance in Poland during Operation Barbarossa June 1941 the German invasion of Russia.

    The Battle of Białystok–Minsk was a German strategic operation conducted by the Army Group Centre under the command of Fedor Von Bock during the penetration of the Soviet border region in the opening stage of Operation Barbarossa lasting from 22 June to 3 July 1941. Its goal, the encirclement and destruction of the Red Army's Western Front forces around Bialystok and Minsk, was accomplished. All major Soviet counter-attacks and break-through attempts failed, and the defenders were defeated, allowing for the Wehrmacht to take many Soviet prisoners German losses were very light compared to the Russians. Bialystok is now in modern Day Poland.
