Danish 30-06 Blank

I picked up a Danish M52 30-06 blank at the last ECRA meeting in Germany.
At first sight nothing special about the round, just another year that I didn’t have.
However after having a closer look, I noticed that the letters/numbers are with serifs.
I have many others from AMA (Haerens) but no other headstamp uses this letter type.
Years before and after all have letters witout serifs, why this one ??


No idea for the reason.

Additional to .30-06 blanks I’ve found this font on

  • 7.62x51 NATO tracer: (NATO cross in circle) AMA 72 {sic!}
  • 7.62x51 NATO blank: AMA 73
  • 9x19 blank: AMA 73

Does your M/52 have 2 grooves around the body?

yes it has
