Hello Paul,

I'm trying to ID a piece of armor from the turret, or hull, of a German tank. It looks like possibly a turret plug. Do you know and experts that might help me say for sure? Attached is a photo.

Thanks very much!

Greetings

I have not  been able to positively identify the tank or vehicle this piece came from.  It is similar to a door on the top of some Tiger tanks.  

There is a a place that may have your answer.  The Tank Museum in Dorset England is a fantastic place.  I have included a contact page below.  

I wish I had more information but check out the below website also.

Thank you
