Job lot??
Second choice cases i believe.

I got these pictures from our late friend Eightbore.
He called them SECONDS,as polman says…

These were second quality/rejected rounds. They were dumped onto the colonies (Canada in particular)… I have found a large number of these over the years in Canada. Most had the 3 X’s(most common) or REJECT (quite scarce) stamped into the sidewall. A close examination of any of these will show defects in either the paper or the cartridge head.

Cheers,
Will.
