This is dedicated thread where we all can post German artillery serials, from different locations. Mostly to have a centralized place to track the numbers and keep an ongoing discussion.

Let's start with 3.7 cm Pak 36 in Saumur:

R15562

5.0 cm Pak 38 in Saumur:

R.6575

The marking above the breech seems a bit odd to me.

Massimo, Walter, et al,

I love the idea!
I've always felt that artillery- of all nations- has gotten short shift with respect to kits and references, though that is being better addressed these days.
I have photos of most of the remaining WWII German artillery pieces in Canada and would love to participate. That said, it is my observation that most of the guns are parked outside and between the multiple layers of thick paint and or rust, many of the serial numbers and manufacturing marks are no longer distinct.
I'll go through my photos and see what I can gleam.

Bruce

Besides the serial at the breech, there are a bunch of serial numbers all over
- the cradle has it own serial at various locations;
- the crucifix platform has it's own serial also
