    C12 primer with "o" stamping

    What is the meaning or significance of an "O" stamped on the base of a C12 primer - possibly filled with red paint. Picture below.

    Is this not the Dutch EOD system of designating something inert?

    Yes, that is correct. Old designation. An O filled with red paint, meaning “Onschadelijk” = inert.
