Well, I'm sure it will clean up nicely and has many potential uses.....er, paperweight ? Anyhow, it was only £3 so it didn't exactly break the bank account

I suppose- if the seller was a Finn - that this is from the Karelian front where in several places you can find truly huge pieces in the ground. Many Finns visit those battle places with mine detector equipment. Great find anyway!

This rusty shell casing is quite a nice pick-up as well. A nice conversation piece and you can turn it into a research project if you ever try to identify what type of weapon it is from.

yep heavy thing , my Scheklappen piece is terribly heavy around 25 pounds of 5mm steel plate fitted on the fuselage sides of the heavy armored Fw 190A-8/R2, in the case it is from 5.Sturm/JG 4. gotta find a place for it on the wall but it might just pull away, paint, sheet-rock and all .......hmmmmmmmmm what to do........

Yes, it's 10.5cm and on my return visit to Beltring I checked out some complete shells on the stalls : this one, from it's shape and size, appears to be from a 10.5cm le FH18 field howitzer or similar......
