    Thanks Tom! I wasn't sure it's german. This leaves me wondering what the hell did they do with dummy rounds in a combat line ...misteries of metal detecting!

    I have around 50-60 of them found from old training field. It cleans up perfectly with toothpaste, it is made of brass.

    Very nice find Zeller...EX stands for Exercier (Patrone) - training round. P stands for Polte Werke, Magdeburg, Deutschland.
    In fact it's steel, copper-plated, dark-green painted...I have one in near-good cond.
