    Sorry, this is not correct.
    I will make it a little easier. By coincidence I have the same label:

    The label tells us;

    15 Patronen PmK –v- (auch für Tp)
    15 rounds Phosphorus with core upgraded (can be used in tropic)
    P. 35. L. 42
    Polte 35th lot of 1942
    Np. Gew. R. P. (1,8 .1,3/02) mog. 1941-36
    Nitropenta Gewehr Rörchen Pulver (size of the powder in mm) Moschwig 36th lot of 1941
    Patrh: S* P versch. L. zerl. aux Gesch. P205 L42
    Cartridge case brass P different took apart by Polte (aux) Bullet Polte 205th lot of 1942
    Füll: B. 30L 42. Zdh 88 DWM 375 g L 40
    Phosphorus filling 30th lot of 1942 Primer DWM 375th lot, sup lot “g” of 1940

    This is a funny label. In 1941/43 the Germans had a large copper problem.
    As we know a brass case was made with 72° copper. The German air force did not accept steel cases. They unloaded old brass cartridges and loaded them again for the air force.

    Interesting is the way it was written on the label.
    To confuse the “enemy” all cartridges had a “P” with a number. P25-P120-P163 and so on.
    They should bereave all rounds were made by Polte.
    In 1940 P (Polte) became the new code “aux”. Now in 1942 the reloaded round became on the box label the old Polte code (P. 35. L.42) and the new code for the same plant unloading the cartridges. They also made a new primer in the case, so the round must have 6 primer crimps.

    Kind regards
