Is this cartridge from WW1?


I found this cartridge when hiking in the German alps. It lay on the ground, not buried. It reads on the bottom: 7 | 16 | | S67 | P

Could it really be, that the cartridge is from 1916? It looks not very old.


Yes, no doubt. The case was made July 1916 by Polte Werke, Magdeburg, Germany. Polte was during WWI a principal producer of German ammunition. Very nice souvenir…
