    These cases were probably sold to Polte who loaded them as Platzpatronen.

    P162, Presswerk Metgethen was a production plant from “Kopp” opened in 1934.
    They did not make any developments there.
    The cartridges they produced were sS, SmE, Platz 33 and lS.

    Your head stamp is known as a sS (heavy ball) round.

    The cartridge you showed looks to me as a fantasy product.

    Dutch, thank you for answering.
    Yes, this is a tricky one. I was kinda hoping one of our members from Denmark would have a go at thisone. Maybe some of you have encountered simular markings on military cartridges in Denmark? If you have, please show some pictures.

    Regards

    My stepdad had given me a couple boxes dated 1950. Was a little leery about shooting it at first but I will say, 15 out of 15 I shot went off. Amazing how ammo that’s 68 years old shoots better than a lot of new. I priced a box of federal here yesterday and it was 38.99. No thanks
