Stunning Find!!! I have seen references to this cartridge being made in various areas in China. The only ones I know of are two examples of rounds made in the Shanghai Arsenal.

Many thanks!

Very nice! I have a picture of another example by the same arsenal but made on the 2nd year of the Xuantong Dynasty (1910).
