Could it be that the cases were made at SMI at Campo Tizzoro, Lot 1 of 1944, then shipped to Germany for Priming and filling??
By January 44, The Front line was getting up close to Tuscany: the Germans were already evacuating a lot of Italian munitions factories to Upper Italy (RSI), the Tyrol, and Austria.
Only an original Packet label will settle the matter.
