Very nice and rare steel based 8,8cm shell as used for anti aircraft 88 guns, and also used in Tiger Tanks. Maker marked by ‘atr’ dated 1942.
Some interesting information from www.warrelics.com;
atr; Langbein-Pfannhauser-Werke A.-G., Leipzig 05, Torgauer Str. 76
Obviously 42 was the manufacture date, 244 was the lot number (244rd of 1942) and the WaA10 is the military authority acceptance stamp. The ‘8,8cm Flak 18’ is obviously the weapon, and ‘(8,8cm 30St)’ is the case designation- since there were several 8,8cm weapons with different cases; the ‘St’ portion refers to the case being Stahl (steel).
