In my opinion: the brass case is not rare, the steel based case in good condition is more difficult to find.
I do not have a picture of the gun. But I think it was called 76,2mm M1902 or 1906. The Germans captured a lot of these guns during WW1, enough to make their own ammunition.

Greetz!

This is RHEINMETALL logo, not "Rheinstahl"

Second casing is Fritz Neumeyer made.
