an Rundkeilveschluss , but the 10,5 cm have an Flachkeilveschluss . it could be
an 15 cm SKL/40 .

Prior to the war 1939 the estonians listed a 234 mm cd battery as "Rannapatarei(Battery) nr. 6: (234mm)" in their order of battle. It was listed as part of the Suurop Peninsula Command.
Does anyone have any information (pictures or datasheets) about ammunition for those 234 mm guns in Finland and in Estonia?? We got two 9.2-inch shells. One is colored and markings on it, but another one is rusty but they are the same.

It is more or less impossible to ID this shell - I couldn't find any information. :(

Best regards

These are the 210 MM former Turkish Krupp guns captured by Greece located at Saloniki Greece. The pic shows them after their capture by the Germans during WW II.

Thank you very much for your answer, Roland1369. Do you know the exact model of these Krupp guns ?
Where the Turkish installed these guns ?
