I acquired the ammunition shown in the attached link when I purchased en bloc clips for a Turkish commission rifle. The rifle has been modified to use JS ammunition. I’m not much of an ammunition collector and am wondering if this ammunition has any collector value. The bullets measure about 0.317". Any advice or approximation of value would be appreciated. Thanks. Carl

Yes, these are German M88 cartridges, made by the Deutsche Metallpatronenfabrik, Karlsruhe, and later called DWM.

These are collecteble cartridges. The value is a couple of dollars.
For example I collect them by the month, other only by type.
