ID assistance-MK 34 MOD. 7 6in HC

Hello all:

Interesting website you have here.

I recently acquired a projectile at an auction.

The only marking I can find on it reads: LOT 37 MK 34 MOD. 7 6in HC.

Is there anyone here that is familliar with this particular type of round?

I can post pictures if necessary. Any help is greatly appreciated.


6"/47 MK 34 High Capacity for the MK 16 gun found on Light Cruisers. 105 pounds loaded weight. Separate loading, i.e., brass cartridge case and projectile.

Empty cases can be found once in a while on the auction sites. There was one on Gun Broker earlier this month.
