R.W.S. 6,35x15,5mmSR "N 6,35"

How old is it? It has a domed primer.

I can only guess that this 6.35 mm cartridge was made before 1927, when a working agreement between Geco and RWS left Geco making the pistol ammunition for both companies. Also, it does not have the Sinoxid Primer ā€œOā€ marking on the cup. Again, this is just a guess. This headstamp of ā€œNā€ appears as late as 1933, but that was on 9 x 19 mm and has the ā€œOā€ primer. It also appears on 7.65 mm Browning and perhaps others that slip my mind at the moment.
