Polish 7.9x57mm headstamp

Does anyone know if the date in this headstamp was intentionally omitted or is it a bunter error or what? I can’t find it listed in the book on Polish ammunition, maybe I overlooked it.

Phil,

Unfortunately I have no idea.

But I can show you a different head stamp like yours.
The Polish eagle is missing. My theory is that after the occupation from Poland in September 1939, the Germans start producing ammunition and only removed the eagle from the bunter.

In 1940 the first HASAG head stamps showed up and later 1940 the German “kam” code.

Dutch – Thanks for the picture. I have the headstamp without the eagle but I don’t have either one from lot 1. The first lot number I have is 2.
