    Ingrid,

    Are there any letters on the bottom? They are fired projectiles as you can see the rifling marks. The pointed one on the far right certainly looks like a 7.92x57mm sS round. Can you also weigh them? The others might be an early M88 round, but I have never seen a flat nosed one, but then I dont have much knowledge of WW1 era, but i will check.

    These are early M86 Lebel bullets.
