Interesting find 7,9x57 Polisch/German

Last weekend I found this cartridge on a Dutch show.

It is a SmE round (blue annulus) with a 1939 Polish case made by the Germans probably after 1942.
It is the first one I see with a primer 30/40 instead a primer 88.

Very nice find and very interesting. -Ger

Curiosity ! Probably the Germans found some Polish cases in the stores in Skarżysko. I wonder how many such cartridges were produced. Nice found!

They must have millions of cases found in Poland and transport them to Germany.
Most of them were loaded as blanks.
As you can see on the label, also with Polish primers.
