    Yes, I think they're quite rare to find these days. They are not the normal 9mm Parabellum round, they are the Mauser 9mm 'Export' long cartridge used in the some C.96 'Broomhandle' Mausers. From the label, yours were produced just prior to the war starting and are probably commercially-sold ; wartime boxes have a different style of label and more usually copper-jacketed rounds.

    I forgot to say ( because I couldn't remember when I wrote the original post ) that this cartridge was also used in the Steyr-Solothurn ( or MP.34 ) submachinegun.......

    We have met the enemy and have learned nothing more about him. I have, however, learned some things about myself. There are things men can do to one another that are sobering to the soul. It is one thing to reconcile these things with God, but another to square it with yourself. - Robert Leckie
