Was taking some images today and decided to post them.
The nts headstamped red plastic Ex rounds are probably the most difficult to find, ranking with or just above the black plastic P 40 Ex rounds.
The rounds were made by Presswerk u. Drechslerwarenfabrik, Liban Kreis Fatschin/Protektorat. Documented production dates are 1943 through 1945. The 43 dated Ex has serifs on the headstamp. I suspect there is also a 43 date without the Serifs since that is true with the ay & lpk Ex rounds. I also think the one with just the “4” date uses the bunter from the unserif 43 and they just removed the 3 for the 44 dated Ex. I understood that the unheadstamp round was also by nts, but how to know??? Both ay & lpk also used the transparent plastic. There is also a 45 date confirmed in nts which is high on my wantlist.
Has anyone a photo/image of the nts 45 or the nts 43 without serifs?
Are there any other variations??? The Woodin Lab has two of these with identical headstamps but an x-ray shows very different shape to the internal steel part.
