    Fj38 ET71 # 8885 or 3835 ?

    Hi members,

    What is your opinion? I assume that # 8885 does not exist!

    Regards

        Yes, better first check previous threads especially when they pinned this means it consists of often asking questions..
        And there were no original fj helmets with such high range 8... lot numbers. All known ended between 5000 and 6000..
        Looking for FJR2 combat pics in Russia.

          I think what you are saying is that the highest lot numbers for FJ shells were somewhere in the 5000s range? Interesting, I had not thought about it.
          When you go home
          Tell them for us and say
          For your tomorrow

            I agree with Sergey. From what I have seen, the early M37's and M38's had lot numbers ranging from the upper 2000's to around 5000+, then about 1940 ET started over with the numbers and they range from below 1000 to just under 6000.

            Cheers,
            Terry

              Yes, Walter, I meant exactly this.
              Terry, glad to hear that you have same observations

                I assume that the famous # 4054 belongs to the period after 1940.

                  Yes, of course. Those shells should have no decals and later war bolts (aluminum vented, aluminum slotted, steel bolts or combination of those).
