    Default 7,9x57 headstamps

    I'm not expert with German headstamps...
    but I think that those ammos are older, 1915 -1916?

    Not all from 1915/16: the third left (above) is from november 1914.

    Oke I missed that one but novenber? I thought 11 was the Lot nr. That it has to do with one lot of gunpowder. Look at the round bottom right, 44!

    Hi Racefiets

    Till 1925, month and year are stamped in the headstamp.
    About the cartridge right below: It looks like 44, but i think (and i'am almost certain) it's 11. Maybe there are some scratches or it could be caused by bad machinery.
