  1. Stumbled onto this in a small out of the way shop...figure probably not too many of these floating around... 225 round .50 cal ammo feed can for the PV-1 Ventura...not sure if this was used on the Martin dorsal turret, although I read those were 100 round cans, or more likely the fixed forward 50's of the boat buster variants...anyone know for sure? Nice data plate affixed...
  2. If you're worried about the primer, squirt it WD 40...that will kill it beyond all doubt. Its just a primer, do you worry about the primers in your rounds for a rifle or pistol?
  3. Those links on the OP look German to me...whats the rest of the headstamp on the rounds?
  4. 37mm were used by EVERYONE...so it could be anyone's...I will say, its unfired (unengraved driving band) and base fuzed, so its a filled AP. Just an FYI...
  5. Looks like a 20x102....modern, used in the M61 gatling gun, F14, F15, F16, F18....
  6. Also, the multiple mag pouches, if they havea grommet on the closing tab, they are the harder to find first pattern, and bring a premium...
  7. They are collectible, figure at least $3-$5 per round....
  8. I grew up in Denver/Adamstown, would have loved to have went to this one! That 88 with the yellow projectile is actually a 8,8cm Flak 41 round, which was MUCH longer than the standard 88 Flak 36/37 or KwK 36 round, which the white tipped AP round next to it is... The shorter round is what was used in the typical German 88 FlaK gun, and the Tiger tank... Very nice pieces, and the French striped 75 next to it is really nice too!
  9. You can roughly date it by the type of label...does it have the colored stripes, or are they plain?
  10. Just as a heads up...to realize the max prices on boxed ammo, the boxes must be sealed and in excellent shape. The bullets poking holes in the bottom will reduce the price pretty good... So if you find that, say, the early tracer box may be listed at $50-$60, the condition of yours would probably halve that...still a cool box, but condition will hurt value a bit...
  11. Thanks Al! That's why I do not hesitate to buy orphaned projectiles or cases, I know down the line, I will likely find the other half...it may take years, even decades, but you never know when you'll get lucky. ETA...See you in September at Market Hall?
  12. And a 90mm HE and HVAP...next to a German 88 for comparison...
  13. Sure...I don't have really good pics, but here is a WWI 3" Field Gun shrapnel round, and a rare 3" 15 pdr Seacoast Gun AA shell...
