Again great images, thank you for sharing Jean-Francois.

Do you happen to have images of single cartridges that would belong to these boxes?

Box of 1884 and similar round, Undated.

Checking the weight of full short blanks versus Halbe Ladung or half charge :
1868 10.2 g - halbe ladung 8.6 g
1878 10.6 g - halbe ladung 8.5/8.6 g
1896 11.5 g - no data for 1/2 ladung.
The halbe ladung has a visible reduced powder load, small piece of fabric with lacquer deep into the case and not right at the top.
