You are bidding on a VERY NICE example of a WW2 German 8.8cm KwK36 Inert Steel Shell, as used by Germany’s famous Panzer VI “Tiger” and FlaK 18/36/37 anti-aircraft/anti-tank weapons!
The 8.8 cm KwK 36 L/56 (German: 8,8 cm Kampfwagenkanone 36 L/56) was an 88 mm tank gun used by the German Heer during World War II. This was the primary armament of the PzKpfw VI Tiger I tank. It was developed and built by Krupp.
Made of solid steel, this is an EXCELLENT piece of history! There is some slight wear and corrosion (as well as a small crack), however it remains VERY SOLID! Some corrosion on the markings…but mcuh is legible. Also retains most of its original wartime coloring! Unlike most of the 88mm shells you see that come from Finnish stock, this is 100% ORIGINAL WW2 German! Measures approx. 22″ in overall height, and 4″ in diameter. Would make a PERFECT addition to any collection or display!
