Ive recently been doing a major restoration of my house, which included raising it about 6 feet off the ground. while cleaning out some things from underneath it, I came across this very unusual (to me at least) centerfire cartridge laying in an area that about 75 years ago was the front yard.
unfortunately, even though it hasn’t ever been fired, its missing the projectile, and a small piece of the casing.
Aside from just its odd appearance, I also noticed that it appears to be made out of a piece of cast copper or bronze that was drilled out, rather than the thin brass casing that I’m accustomed to.
I’ve done several searches on the internet and I cant find anything about it at all, so, here I am.
From what I can see, the headstamp reads:
Here’s a couple pictures of it, with a 7.62x25 tokarev and a 32 auto for comparison
Any information about it would be appreciated.
