You are bidding on a VERY NICE example of a WW1 British / Canadian 57mm 6-Pounder AP Artillery Round! This was used in conjunction with the Ordnance Quick-Firing 6-Pounder cwt Hotchkiss Naval and Anti-tank gun!
The Ordnance QF 6-pounder 6 cwt Hotchkiss Mk I and Mk II was a shortened version of the original QF 6 pounder Hotchkiss naval gun, and was developed specifically for use in the sponsons of the later Marks of British tanks in World War I, from Mark IV onwards.
Made of solid steel and brass, this is a FANTASTIC piece of history! There is some obvious wear and corrosion, however it remains VERY SOLID! Most of the headstamp markings are still intact and legible! 100% INERT, it would make a PERFECT addition to any collection or display!
