Here is a picture with Gilding metal clad steel German Dummy made in 1916. I have some question regarding it’s headstamp:
- First question concern the manufacurer code HN. My available sources give me a simplified identification of this manufacturer - Huck, Nürnberg. But, in time of WWI there was two “Huck’s” companies in Nürnberg:
- Heinrich Huck (or H. Huck) Metallwarenfabrik
- Johann Adam Huck (or J.A. Huck) Metallwarenfabrik
Both firms was still existed in WWII.
So, the question is - which of these two Huck companies made this cartridge?
- And the second question is: what is a meaning of “S” headstamp on 3 o’clock? S-Patrone?
