I bought out a firearms estate some time ago. In the lot I found a box of ammo labled as “88 Mauser” (pictured on left). However, I also found another unopend box that I am unable to identify. I believe it may also be ammo for the 1888 Commision Rifle…however, I am not sure. Up to this point all I know for certain about it is that it has German writing and has the date of April 18th, 1900. Can anyone help me identify it? Does anyone have an idea of what it would be worth?
I also found this picture of another box of ammo. While I do not own this box the lable seems simular:
