Found this 37mm U.S. shell casing piece on a field by my country house in Latvia (the former WW2 Eastern Front) while metal detecting.It’s quite uncommon to find a piece of military equipment that is from a country 8,000km away in your backyard :). All jokes aside I believe this one is from a M3 Stuart or M3 Lee as they both had served in the Soviet army during WW2 as part of the Lend-Lease program and both had 37mm guns. The previous owner of the house said that a couple of U.S. tanks rolled up from the forest next to the field ,and one of them took a direct hit from German artillery. I need help identifying the lot number and learning more about this shell.
The headstamp says ‘‘LOT 9662-5 (circle with a ‘‘X’’ through it) OL (or GL) 1942 37MM’’.
