    Deciphering marks on my austrian casing

    Hello all,
    I am trying to decipher the marks on my austrian casing here, which appears to have restamps if i am correct? The 521 above the model of the gun that is lightly stamped i believe is a lot number? what is your opinions? Also there is two stamps of the date and also austrian markings, any ideas on why that is necessary?
    Regards,
    frijoles

    from the bottom up:

    10cm M.14: 10 cm M.14 field howitzer
    521: lot number
    1916: date of case production
    MW-monogram: factory of the case: Manfred Weiss in Csepel/Budapest, Hungary
    CS-double eagle-16: acceptance stamp consisting of: City of Csepel (today part of Budapest), austrian state crest, year of acceptance
    V-is most probably "verifiziert", something like "inspected"
