I bought a war art lamp with UK sockets, a US Naval electrical socket, with a 75 mm shell on a rimmed 390 mm case marked only with "65".
I'm so curious as to what gun used this shell. All I can find so far is that the standard French / US 75s were 350 long. Also that German shells often have a two digit quality code. Anybody??

I would need to see a photo of it to have some idea.
