    Oh, I'm sure there were, but there would have been something like 1300 codes between ozz and quv, and it seems quite unlikely that many new maker codes would have been issued between 10.1944 and 5.1945.

    What is that "ring" between the fuze and the shell body ??????
    It's an adapter, probaly made by the same guy who also did the stencilling.

    It's the same type of shell as this one here: http://blazeold.ath.cx/viewtopic.php?t=770

    A new adapter, with the proper dimensions has been fitted now (thanks D)

    So yours is a 8.8 cm "Minengeschoss" ?
    Yes, it's the same type of shell.

    Not necessarily issued but picked from that range, our problem is lack of information.
    Do not forget that in 1945 in relation to other years the output was the highest in war time and many plants were decentralized and workshops/factories as small as garages had their own codes, all that being issued in the chaos of the last few months.

    The "FES"stamp was used again it seems.

    Look here : http://www.egun.de/market/item.php?id=1008962

    Actually, it's the opposite- it means that the shell was made by drawing the steel into shape rather than casting it. I'd translate Presstahlzugezogen simply as 'Drawn Steel'.

    The cast shell is of course the 'Stg'- 'Stahlgußgeschoß' or 'Cast Steel Projectile'.

    And I don't mean to contradict you Zünder, but I have a 8,8cm shell with its original paint and the paint goes all the way to the base- so the fact that Rich's is fully-painted doesn't mean the finish is definitely post-war.

    Can you post an image of your shell?

    Default translation

    The translation could be : hot pressed - taper rolled / swaged.

    Hello Guys,
    I found this page some time ago and this is my first post here.

    It was interesting to read that all 8,8 cm shell were painted black below drivingbands with some bituminous material for water resistance purpose. How this debate stands today?

    I am asking that because i have seen a groung dug 8,8 shell without the black paint but with genuine yellow color.

    What is your opinion?

    So we have explained the Pr.zugz. and Stg. shells - and what about the Bo. Pr. or Flussstahl gebohrt. Is it a cast shell with machined (drilled) cavity?
    Pressstahl or Walzstahl gepresst is, as I understand, pressed/rolled steel?
