Cuban 7,62x39 case draw pieces (13 84)

Hi guys, got these three pieces today, thought someone might be interested in seeing them. I saw that they were discussed before but I only saw complete casings/rounds, not pictures of these draw pieces…



Word I got (and that I read here on the forums) is that these were found in the ballast compartments of a Cuban ship in an Italian harbor by some Italian cartridge collector working for the harbor (customs inspector or the likes…?). OR, it was delivered as scrap…? Saw both versions…

If true, very cool, if not, still cool to have these around :-)

That’s pretty-much the story on the Cuban case discards. Laded rounds came out of South Africa 10-20 years ago, left by Cuban “tourists” who visited Angola and Namibia.
