You are bidding on an EXTREMELY RARE and 100% original Main Data Plate for the RECOIL CYLINDER of a 3″/50 Gun, as used on various WW2 Navy Warships and Submarines! This came from an estate in Germany, so most likely from a captured or scuttled vessel.
The WW2 US Navy 3″/50 caliber gun fired a projectile 3 inches (76 mm) in diameter, with a barrel that was 50 calibers long (barrel length is 3 in × 50 = 150 in or 3.8 m). Different guns (identified by Mark numbers) of this caliber were used by the U.S. Navy throughout WW2.
Made of brass, this is a SUPERB item, as removed from the Recoil Cylinder! All information is clearly legible, and indicates:
US NAVY – BU. OF ORD.
BEFORE FILLING ELEVATE
GUN TO 65 DEGREES AND
FILL TO PLUG HOLE
It mounted directly to the Recoil Cylinder, and due to the age, very few remain in existence. There is some obvious wear and scratches due to the age, but otherwise FANTASTIC in condition! Measuring approx. 1.25″ x 2.5″, it would make a SUPERB addition to any collection, display, or restoration project!

All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.
——————- ABOUT ME —————–
Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
