    Are there any markings on it anywhere ?

    It does look like a German 7.92 cartridge case but markings would help confirm it.

    I suspect if you gave it a good wash you'd find some

    Hi, it does not look the same as my example, which is dated 1940, though I dont know if there were many/any variations in these. Mine is mm and dated near the carrying handle.

    Looking at mine, about which I know for sure it's from a ZB, I can say that yours is too from a ZB!

    Hello! It's a yugo ammo box, in use in German Army also. I found mine in Paris some years ago, not coming from a surplus

    I don't know, mate.

    Here's mine, and like I've said, this one is for sure from a ZB.

    Anyone else?
