Rare 1900 Imperial German Navy (Kaiserliche) 8.8cm Shell Case (Inert)
A very rare 1900 dated Kaiserliche 8.8cm brass shell case that would have been carried & used aboard an Imperial German Navy river/coastal gunboat.
The 8.8cm Ubts L/30 Schelladekanone was developed by Krupps in the late 19th century (1898) but bears no resemblance or connection to the 88mm anti-aircraft gun of WW2.
This example bears the marines letter stamping (M with Imperial crown above) and later WW1 re-issue dates for 1914.17 & 18.
This brass case has not been polished for many years and now has an age related patina.
Length 15 1/4 inches.
Sorry UK sale only.
