Old fashioned bullet


#1

Hi, into my possession has come a rimless brass bullet. The underneath is stamped KN 11a or 12,there is Naval crown with an old fashioned M embossed on the cartridge,the actual bullet is stamped Sterling Silver.
Are you able to give me any info on this & what type of gun this came from.
Many thanks

The cartridge case should be .303" In this instance, apparently manufactured by KN - Kings Norton

The description given by the IWM is slightly inaccurate in saying that it was a brass tube - they were fired cases.

These are quite collectable, particularly if the pencil is still present.
