    It idoes have a certain charm.

    P120 is the makers code. "P120" = Dynamit A.-G., vormals Alfred Nobel & Co., Werk Empelde, Germany.

    Wartime links are slightly different in construction with little springs between each link.

    Cheers, Ade.

    something odd here
    i agree with Ade
    if you look at the primer its held in the case by three stampings
    to my knowlage that was not done with german war time ammo ?? again could be wrong
    and the bulet head is very slim an pointed
    7.92 or 8mm in my experiance is much more curved
    i would say thes are 7.62 nato rounds
    but there we go
    the question is the date
    is it a date
    i dont know im not an expert
    lets see what others have to say
    cheers ian

    It is a date, but I don't understand how they have come to be in post war links. Most odd.

    i dont know, i just found them thats all, and the links look as bent as the rest, maybe someone had them before me and has done something who knows with them, but still nice and look like art
