hey, I have had this 88mm shell for a long while now. But I am really thinking i would rather have some ammo I can fire than this collectible. The side says 13 Sk 6 44, along with other marks which are much harder to read as they aren't very clear. I have no idea what its worth and was wondering if anyone could help me out with value.

Probably not worth much...and kinda cool. I'd keep it!

If it has no interest or personal value to you and you have no knowledge of its history, then it is just a chunk of iron taking up space -- Sell or trade for something of interest or value to you -- my ha-penny

you might have someone tell you more about the value at the G503.com forum, go to the weapons forum there.

It seemed like a very informative post to me. I wonder what's going on?:confused:

Not deleted. Two threads in different forums on the same topic.

See, we're not *always* out to get you.

Just most of the time. :D

My collector friend says the round is worth $50-$75.

how much is it worth as scrap?

DO NOT sell this as scrap. It is an important piece of history. Sell it to a collector if you must.

That said, I'd love to have it in my collection, although my funds are limited right now. I can refer you to others that would be interested, as well.

Lend/give it to a Veterans Hall/VFW/Legion Museum. Good clean war relics are always welcome.
