Dating cardboard paper shotshells


#1

Hi all, a very new poster here in dire need of advice.
About 8 years ago I was “scrounging” in a loft in an old shearing shed (in Australia) I found a wheat sack with over 650 empty cardboard shotshells. There was also 30 x .303 stripper clips. Each clip had 5 live rounds & were dated 18; 19; & 23
Other paperwork in the loft carried dates between 1906 and no later than 1936.
I advertised the shotshells on an Australian auction website (not Ebay) and stated that they were 1920’s to mid 1930’s but have received some age related questions.
Here are 3 examples & I hope someone will be able to confirm or refute the dating.
Thanks …momma

I didn’t want to overload the first post with too many pics but here are 3 very moth eaten paper items that were also inside the sack. They may help with dating ???

Hello The Amberite is to be dated between 1920 and 1924
The Nile is made between 1912 and 1919.
This is according the headstamps.

Hello Me again,
I had to look for when the Walsrode was made. It is between 1932 and 1941.
Best regards rene
