    What is the rim diameter? Looks like a pre-1900 Belgium fortress 47 mm case but it is to short. This case is 47x158R64.1
    Ignorance is bliss.

    I can't find an exact match, but the ring around the primer could indicate Nordenfelt manufacture.

    Thank you for your answers.
    I confirm that the length is 151mm and not 158mm.
    The diameter of the rim is 64mm

    From the position of the crimps, it looks like the shorter case may have been cut down.

    Certainly does look like it is cut down.

    This seems to me indeed very likely.
    Thank you all for your help.
