    It's okay, i already find the answer i guess.
    The brass one made in 1962 made from silicon - brass. From the color, i guess it's once a High Explosive Incendiary shell. The steel one made in 1957, from the inscription it's High Explosive Fragmentation shell. The steel made shell case can be found in the early ammunition when the S60 first time appear.
    I think both made in Tula.
