As used on Zeppelins and other Imperial German war machines this is an nice example of the WW1 German 3.7cm Sockelflak Ball-Tracer round. The semi-rimmed brass case measures 37x101SR so is longer than the more common 37x94R (1Pdr) round. Case has the following headstamps 'PATRONENFABRIK KARLSRUHE 917 1917' with a struck screw-in primer. The hollow ball/tracer projectile is empty and unfired with a single copper driving band and, an added bonus, the white metal base plug is still present. The smaller, central 'blow out' brass igniter plug for the tracer composition is missing. Case is in nice condition and grips the projectile in the correct position.
Condition as per images above. Second Class postage to a mainland UK postcode will be £3.50.
