That is a carton of 6.5x53Rmm Model 1896 cartridges in two clips for the Portuguese Mannlicher rifles and carbines.

JP,

There was a thread on these cartons, cartridges and clips which started on the 25th April 2010. I don’t know how to post a link to that thread but if you trawl back to that date you should find it OK.
