Any markings on the driving band or body about an inch above the driving bands? Most certainly NOT 75mm, most had a single, low pressure driving band. It is an APC ( armored piercing capped), narrowed down to 76mm or 3”. I am not in town to access my collection, but being black without yellow or red ( navy 3” had a more colorful detailed paint scheme, and an “ anchor” engraved ). My suspicion quickly is an Army APC.

No Markings are visible to an untrained eye.

Thanks for replying, looking forward to more information.

M319 or M339, not sure on the exact M number, but no doubt ( if 3” or 76mm diameter at the base) an HVAP round. First developed very late war, different models improved upon and used past the Korean War era. 0615165C-2438-4E52-8D78-73B5B3C088B7.png.77bf97ec7500642d25b5d56507376427.png113D619F-E437-4007-84E2-E1AAC3D32339.png.029de8c748b1334354f4a908e76f8396.png
