Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgPretty standard but hard to find this size in Canada. This is the 8cm mortar projectile for the GrW34. It’s marked for blw 42, meaning it was manufactured in 1942 by Gritzner-Kayzer AG in Karlsrühe. It is obviously ground-dug but will make a great candidate for a restore.
