Your cartridge is a SmK Lsp. (hardcore tracer), with a CWS case.
The head stamp is; ”aux Xma1 2 41”

aux = Polte Magdeburg
X = Klöckner-Werke AG Marienwerke, Osnabrück (Steel plant)
ma = F.A. Lange, Neusilberfabrikate, aue/Sachsen (plating facility)

Thank you !

So, where was made this cartridge…Magdeburg, Osnabrück…?

It looks like…it’s a…‘complex’ cartridge…!??

It’s impressive this steel mix (CWS case)…why so complex for a…7.92 Mauser cartridge case ?

…and thank you for that picture…it’s indeed interesting !

OK, I will try to explain it in a different way.

The steel were the case was made of came from the Klöckner-Werke AG Marienwerke, Osnabrück. (X)
Than the steel was shipped to a company; F.A. Lange, Neusilberfabrikate, aue/Sachsen were the cups were copper plated. (ma)
The number “1” is a code for the steel mix.
This cup was shipped to = Polte Magdeburg (aux) who made cases from these cups and loaded the cartridge, as you can see on the label

The steel mix looks complex, but actually is not. Specifications of this type are quite ordinary.

Jpeelen is correct.

Probably 98% of the steel cased cases had this mix.
There are also some cases known with a “Stahllegierung” (steel mix); 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15, and 17.
