    I just got a 75mm shell casing from August 1918 and can't find anything online to identify these headstamps. Here's a picture of the stamps, I don't know if anyone knows but it won't hurt to ask. Thanks

    The stamps are:
    8 ammo lot 88 59-8-h (top line)
    75mm fg (above primer)
    Bh-8859-8-18 (bottom)
