Default 37MM "Flaming Onion" -Krupp Sockleflak-Lichtspucker(lightspitter) AA,Flare

Picked this up recently. What do you guys think.
37MM "Flaming Onion" -Krupp Sockleflak-Lichtspucker(lightspitter) AA,Flare and anti balloon round.
Marked: "juni 1918" "K 6" "Sp255" "119A"
I have seen this described by the combatants in all different ways, i guess it depended what side you were on sending or referencing.
Examples- Flaming onion,light spitter, scare crow.
Seemed pretty unique to me, have you guys seen many of these?
Regards
Ned

Man that is cool. I have no idea if it's a good one -- someone will -- but it sure looks mean. I have no idea where you will put that in NY though...

Hello,

I contacted a friend that collects 37mm rounds and cases exclusively and he tells me that this case has been reworked and that there were no cases with an upper lip like this one. The bottom of the cases could vary depending on the feed system of the gun, but the tops were all the same, that is, without this rolled over lip.

Regards,
Chip
