Looks mighty archaic to me. What is it?

Peter, are they arranged in any sequence of age or rarity?

Here is one you do not often find.

I’m afraid I’ve no idea what sequence these were made in, they came up alphabetically in my computer folder;

FNC
Mexico
Unmarked

The top two were found with 1930’s ball ammunition although not from sealed packets … so no proof of anything there I’m afraid.

My specimen like Vlad’s (except both components are brass) was found loaded with 5 rounds of F de M 1938 7 m/m ball cartridges. Jack
