While doing a little research on these 9mm rounds I stumbled across your website. First I want to apologize for my first post being a request for help from you. However I still hope you have some information about these rounds.
I ran across these when doing some horse trading with a friend of mine. He tossed them in on a gun deal we were working on even though both of use had no idea what they were. I think he was tired of seeing them laying around and me being a pack rat I was glad to take them. What I have been able to find out so far is this. They are 9mm dummy bullets. I have found pictures that resemble this round that were made by the french. I have also found documentation that says these where also manufactured here in the states by a company called Stembridge Gun Rentals. They were mainly used in the states in Hollywood for the movies. I think the latter is probably more likely between these two options.
Any help would be great. The approximate dates these were manufactured and possibly a value.
