155mm projectiles

Post by lester4238 » Mon Aug 15, 2022 12:00 pm

I was wondering about if I should restore my 155mm projectiles or leave them as is? If I should restore them, what would the markings be? These are in fired condition. With no painted markings left.

It is personal preference.

If it is an incredibly unique and valuable item then I would leave it alone.

If it is common, and restoring it would be something you enjoy doing, then have at it.

Are they unique or common?

If you are looking for the stencils, I make and sell them for the 155mm (and others). Send me an email or PM. Website is in the signature block for examples.

Interesting, do I need the numbers and dates off them? I know 2 are smoke rounds.
