We used to park our farm equipment at an old German WWI airfield in the Jezreel Valley. I have old German ammo in my collection that I got in Israel, but I never saw any in a gift shop. Interesting find!
I guess it could also have gotten to Jerusalem via German supplies to Egypt, Syria, or any Palestinian groups just forming during and just after WWI into the 1930s.

the size is 75x276 ±
I will do more study abut german troops in that area during ww1
the shell was decoreited with carves of the tumb of the rock and was for sale for turists

can i send you pic via e-mail to help me uploud it to the foum?

I PM’d my email address to you.

Here are Joel’s pics of the German case he found in Jerusalem:



This one should be for a “7,7 cm Feldkanone 96 n.A.”.
