I was told that this was from a 37mm aa cannon. But i think that nose fuses was not common for the germans during ww2. To me the shell looks like a hotchkiss or maxim shell from 1880, but the fuse has a mark that looks line an eagle over a blank circle. may that be a old shell reissued during ww2? i have some pictures with all the different markings and i hope you guys are able to explain the markings for me :)
