Steve, you certainly mean 150mm and 105mm.

The 150mm is a Finnish reload from 1969.

Thanks EOD! I did not know that! They were sold to me under the guise of German 152mm and 105mm. Tell me more.

The Finns reworked many German shells. They were a German ally in WW2 and had plenty of their weapons. Some years back a bunch of nice 88s came over the same way. Straight German but with this type of Finnish markings.
