    Strange : In our working collection, we have the same BLU, and same marking !

    Is it possible the manufacturer made the same marking for exhibition items ?

    As a practice item (NATO colour Deep Saxe blue) these were probably made to be dropped out of a carrier bomb to test spread and impact pattern. I know that the live store is yellow in colour and is vaery nasty in its functioning having a shaped charge, incendiary, rag and blast effect.

    this is a really nice and rarer piece, pkm594, hello.
    the shadowy mark seems to be an ink stamp " W.Abf " (Winter-Abfüllung; literally translated winter-bottling). Although not exactly knowing what this special winter issue includes (another charge than FP02 or special lubrication to avoid freezing?) the stamp correspond with the (removed) tin seal.
    added specimen recently found in the net - unfortunately not mine
