    Hello,

    I think it was discussed on the wk2ammo forum (R.I.P) some time ago.
    Someone posted these altered documents.
    Maybe they lead you somewhere.

    Thanks Bob,
    Ok, so one crimp groove seems to be a new model (Neuer Art).
    I also thought to a Br.Sprgr shell with tracer when I found in my doc similar model without tracer.
    Regards

    I have found two in a collection.
    On the picture it is the one on the right. The short tracer element is the same as for two crimp groove body.
    The markings are not complete. Here is what I could read:
    qze 106C (qze 105C on the other specimen)
    WaAA18 (or 16)
    ?we 2 45

    One of the projectiles was fuzed with Zerl.Z.16 dko 44, but it was a flea market find, so the fuze might not be original one.
