Default 7.5cm German shell case identification

Hi
I really could do with some expertise knowledge on this shell casing.

I've always believed it to be from 7.5cm le Ig 18.cannon,but now think it may be belonging to the 7.5cm FK 16 n.A field cannon.
Length is 130mm
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
