Just got this in from the big collection sale advertised in Banzai. Nearly everything else was gone by the time my Banzai came. I was really hoping for it to be a 37mm "tank" round but this is still a nice example. It has a faint "94 gun" marking on the case and the tin (or aluminum) fuse cap & pull tape is still intact.

Thanks sailor! I was very pleased when it came today & turned out to be as nice as it is for $75
Now, of course a new thing like this generates new questions. I haven't seen the protective fuse cover in photos or drawings of these. Please tell me that's super rare! ;) Another thing is on the base. There is some remaining adhesive over the primer area. Of course my first thought is that is was from a price tag & I was thinking of removing it. Thing is, I have a 'like new' T-89 knee mortar round & it has the remaims of a paper cover over the bottom of the base, so??? Whatcha think? The adhesive looks pretty old.
I tried to edit photos in the original post - can you do that? Anyway, here's some more.

Evening Señor A-perros :
How is that for my spanglish ?, nice 37mm anti-tank round, what is the case length ?, is the fuse marked T-93 ? .

Dude, how's that for Kalifornia? ;) The case is 6 9/16". Actually, this is the HE round. The fuse cover has never been off - want me to yank the tape & look? ;)

The projectile is dated Showa 17.12 and is made at a Nagoya subcontractor that looks like it might be TALW?? The second mark is under the white paint. Tha case is dated 17.10 and is Osaka made. The primer has not been struck.

No worries the inside of the primer has been gutted & the projectile is totally safe.

A-dogs, projectile by TALW ??!! Let's see the marking photos !
Edokko, that was just a WAG. It's a diamond with the overlapping corners. The middle is covered with the white paint of the number 8. I can't even make anything out with my loop. I've seen other logos with the overlapping diamond so it could be any one of them. Didn't mean to be misleading ;)
