This is a genuine World War Two dated 40mm Bofors gun round as issued to the US Army and not the Navy, as identified by the M25 headstamp marking for use with their AA Guns. Other markings on the bottom read as DUMMY with a 1944 date. The tarnishing has made it very difficult to read and we made no attempts to clean it up to preserve the patina.

A lovely dummy marked example with matching cardboard transport container ready for display.

The Bofors 40 mm gun, often referred to simply as the Bofors gun, is an anti-aircraft autocannon designed in the 1930s by the Swedish arms manufacturer AB Bofors. It was one of the most popular medium-weight anti-aircraft systems during World War II, used by most of the western Allies as well some captured systems being used by the Axis powers. A small number of these weapons remain in service to this day, and saw action as late as the Persian Gulf War.
