M71 Box

Hi All

New box in the collection, really old one this time :slight_smile: Mauser M71, 1888 year.

So much was saved. It has 3 sticky labels, they may be older than the latter, but do not spoil anything when peeling off. It will stay as it is now.

Some more the two 2-size at the top are still sealed & the lower row are both open.
Interesting the closeness of the dates in the 20-size Spandau boxes between Harrie’s & mine.


The 10 size on the left is also sealed & the right side is also empty.

If you look closely, Berlin is cancelled and manually replaced by “Posen” (today Poznan).
