    Hi Zwerge,

    This is the Canadian G Mk.1 tracer. For some reason, the Canadians decided to put a black band around the case for identification purposes, in addition to the red primer annulus that was normally used. I understand that this type was introduced in 1924, and was pretty much obsolete by 1942, when the Canadians introduced their Mk 2 pattern. It was only the Mk.1 type that had the black band.
