“ON 7.62 TOKAREV 11 19 laquered steel case”

I don’t think this is correct. Can you check this one again and confirm?

The 3 * 48 * is from the Soviet Ulyanovsk Machinery Plant.

I also wondered that, maybe 11 79 or 11 61 or some other combination.

The brass case of your 9mm para was made by Polte, Werk Magedeburg as the 6th lot of 1940. Without the box label, we cannot say for sure who loaded the cartridge, but it was likely also loaded by Polte.

I agree with the others that something is wrong in your description of a “lacquered case” tokarev with headstamp “11 19.” Look at it again.

Yes I have read it incorrectly,
Reading from rim to primer it is 11 91

“11 91” on a Tokarev round is Chinese manufacture, from 1991. I am surprised that your round’s cartridge case is lacquered. Chinese Tokarev rounds we have seen here have been always either brass-cased or copper-washed steel cased.

John is right. Chinese 11 91 is only known in copper-washed steel. In fact, I can’t think of any laquered-steel PRC Tokarev rounds.
Please confirm CWS before I get too excited!

Yes it is copper washed steel, red primer annalus and neck seal
P.S. I am slowing down and seeing things with more clarity now, so hopfully less mistakes as still have about 1500 rounds to catalogue.
