9 Para or Glisenti

Are these 9mm Para or Glisenti?

I am not sure which these are and any help would be appreciated.

Both are 9mm Parabellum. The Glisenti ordinary ball cartridge was never loaded with any bullet shape other than the so-called “Italian Form” of truncated bullet. Loads made for Italy in that caliber by Western and U.S.C.Co. (Maxim USA headstamp) were loaded with the same shape truncated bullets.

Mr Glisenti has spoken!!! And I don’t say that in jest, only respect. I’m waiting for his Maxim article he is working on for the Journal!!!


Thank you very much gentlemen.
