9x17R ID

Hello,
found this case today. 9x17R. Looks like Danish M.91 but I am not sure. There is no headstamp. Who can be manufacturer? Any help appreciated.

Sorry for bad photos.

The Danes bought a lot of M1880 unmarked cartridges in Germany and England.

Thanks!

Do I understand right that the Danish cases had no Berdan head?

I have 3 pulled cartridges.
M1880 loaded with black powder and Berdan primed. Headstamp: Braun & Bloem 380. English supplies might be Boxer primed but i have no clue of this.
Early M1891 (no headstamp) loaded with smokeless and Berdan primed. Cases bought in Germany?
Late M1891 (HA 41 crown) loaded with smokeless and Berdan primed.

Looks like a .380 Revolver case with a battery cup primer, like those made by Eley, for example. I can’t see a connection with any Danish 9 mm variant.

The Danish 9x18R and 9x17R is a rebranded 380 short revolver cartridge as designed by the British.

Right, but the .380 Revolver case shown in the first post doesn’t have the characteristics of any Danish variant.

Fed It is corroded but could that be a 2 piece case with rivet as opposed to a battery cup primer. I agree that it looks British.
