Default Value for a 10.5 Flak shell casing

High, I was sold a 10.5 Flak shell casing as a 88MM shell in an auction where the description was incorrect. What is current value of the 10.5 shell please. Thank you.

Not a common shell case in the US, but it is not really sought after like the 88mm. I would think the high end is $300. Probably more like $200.

Thank you, I paid a bit less than 300 so I guess I am okay. I cannot believe the description was so off. The shell markings are clear and well marked "10.5"

Here are some basic photos of the shell casing. It always turns my images sideways. Sorry about that.

John, you need to downsize the images and then the pics will post correctly.

Thanks, these are "medium" size. I never used to have a problem. This is one of the reasons I slowed down posting etc.
