Hello again,there doesn't seem to be much info forthcoming on my original
query and the postman has just brought me No 3 of what I hope will eventually be a large collection of these interesting little rounds.
This latest round is of wartime production,with two,what I can best describe as grooved copper driving bands.These are much narrower than
those on the two previously mentioned,wartime economy,I guess.
The Roman numeral and 98 do not, of course,appear in the headstamp on
this one,the space either side of the primer is empty,apart from the little
"flowery" logos,that are present on the other two as well.
The date 1918 is at the bottom of the headstamp plus 119A,so these rounds are quite easily dated,not so,perhaps,with the prewar ones.
