    It looks like the German Fraktur letter U if so then it is an early mark for Utendorffer,Nuremburg,Germany....but I could be wrong.....Pete.

    Yes, or a cartridge from a huntingparty. All depends how many more he will find in the same caliber. I doubt only one shot would have been fired if it has been used in battle.

    My 2 centavos worth..
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    I found it together with similar others in a wood near a partisan base. the place has been "humanized" alot in the years, there's a hiking trail nearby, so all the cases were damaged, pressed or broken. This was the only one with readible markings. It would be unusual to find ww1 cases like this, unless it's from old ammo stocks distributed to partisans.
