I found this cartridge case among many others of the same kind, on a remote ww1 battlefield. It seems to be a mauser 7.92 variation, but no markings are present and no primer.
The firing pin stroke is in the body of the case...
Yes, same profile, same caliber as well. That is why I had them close together in that photo, for comparison purposes.
Armourers maybe, but I doubt it was a drill case, knowing it came from a former ww1 battlefield.
You are very right but these spent cases were found in a zone where the war was not static, actually it was a position stormed by the rapid advancing german army.
Of course there is a possibility of finding all sorts of ammo on a battlefield and believe me, I've seen some.
Forgive my stubborness...:tinysmile_fatgrin_t by I was also amazed by this find, in 5 years of wandering the battlefields....
