    Early German headstamp interpretation

    Hi All,
    I have been tasked to decipher the headstamp of an early German cart. I am awaiting the cart. length, but have been advised that it is of 105mm caliber.
    I am particularly interested to know what the Roman numeral II at the top, the VI on the left of primer & 17 under MAGDEBURG mean please?
    Thanks, regards Ozzi.

    VI = 6 = June
    17 = Lot No.
    the roman II I think has to do something with reloading
