Welcome to the forum and sharing the picture of the rounds, however, this part of the Forum does not allow Buy, Sale, or Trade offers. That is available for members only.

Sorry, how can I remove the post?

Welcome here Chris, just alter your text to something like “introducing 7.92x57 dummies” and leave the photo where it is. And maybe other people will feel like showing their dummies too.

I’m sure that all are aware of this but thought I’d point it out just in case. The Danish round below started life as British BESA round. These were later sold to the Danish who converted them into drill rounds. Note the headstamp shows Kynoch loading this 1943 made case as a Mk II tracer. The Danes added the three circular groves to the case and loaded with a wood bullet.

It is also unfortunate but posting or mailing even dummy rounds these days can meet with trouble as mail is in may cases X-Rayed and stopped.

Seitler - that is a nice selection of DDR Ex.patronen. I have not seen the two steel-case versions with normal GM and CN bullets before. I envy the beautiful condition of them as well.

When I sold off my 7.9 collection, I keep all my DDR rounds, as I have a secondary collection of nothing but DDR cartridges, everything except Shotgun Shells, and not those simply because I found it too hard to figure out what were actually made in the DDR as opposed to simply made in Eastern Germany before and after the DDR existed. Thanks for posting those.
