    Some nice finds there. The 3 303s with the oval firing pin mark have been fired by a Bren gun

    When the 98K ammo on the clip is live i would handle the 2nd one from the left side with care.

    Herbert is correct. that is a 7.9mm B. Patr (Beobachtungs -Patrone) or an explosive incendary round.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Its possible to defuse a B-Patrone ? ... well i am not up to date

    To check if not only the case is without powder you can softly sake it near your ear and when you can hear a "tick tick tick" then its not inert. The "tick tick tick" is the ignitor ;-)
    Thats a trick from experienced relic hunters, you never know ;-))))

    Aghs, your "C" spanner, marked "120 130 H 1940" seems to be a shock absorber adjustment tool possibly from a BMW/Zundapp motorcycle, they were still being issued in BMW tool kits upto the 1990's !
    Prost ! Steve.
