I just bought this on Ebay. I think the dirty bird was blurred out to get around ebay rules. I will know more when it arrives.

Yes it is 7,5cm KwK 40 casing.

But from the pictures,it has been colored with gold paint or something.I hope you did not pay too much for it.

Yes, I saw that one and it seemed painted to me...It says "shot with brass metalic spray"

I plan to use it to make a mold for some reproduction rounds in our StuG III G. So as long as it is the correct one, I am ok with it.

What is a fair market value for this type of round?

In Europe, average state complete round would be about 200€. The case alone, in good condition, would be 120€, primer included.
What I would like to know is the dimension of the letters and numbers on the shell.

Let me know Carles,if you get some good condition casings for 120euros with C/22 primer.I am always interested on that price.Even without primer,i am interested on that price.I have plenty of primers...

Good projectile with stencils...I have few good ones,never seen absolute mint ones.But mint condition projectile would be definetly worth of 150euros or even more.
