Rare C96 ammo in 9x25mm

Article about: I picked up some ammo for a C96 broomhandle Mauser in the rarer 9x25mm still in the box. I'm dying to look at the headstamps on them but they are post war sealed and not sure if I should tak

    So the question becomes if anyone can give me a ballpark date on these I'd appreciate it.

    From Wiki! I have a M1930 and the " Know your Broomhandle Mauser" Book byR.J. Berg and had to look that caliber up. I knew that the 7.63MM Mauser and the 9mm Parabellum but not that one!! Very Cool Cous.

    "The 925mm Mauser (or 9mm Mauser Export) was a cartridge developed for the Mauser C96 service pistol around 1904 by DWM. Mauser pistols in this relatively powerful caliber were primarily intended for export to Africa, Asia, and South America. The 9mm Mauser Export cartridge was produced specifically for Mauser pistols and carbines made from 1904 to 1914 and then later from approximately 1930 to 1945 for submachine guns chambered for this caliber.
    The basis of this cartridge was the 7.6325mm Mauser. The case length is the same as the 7.6325mm Mauser, but the case is straight and does not have a bottleneck shape. This cartridge headspaces on the mouth of the case. The 9 mm Mauser should not be confused with the 919mm Parabellum (919mm Luger) or the 923mm Steyr."

    So being an export cartridge I'd say is wasnt during war time. They would have been busy with other production goals. Thanks Phil.

    Nice find ! Interesting to see the earlier-type packaging.

    In my collection, I have a box of 1940-dated Mauser 9mm 'Long' which is complete with both stripper clips containing 8 rounds each. The clip markings match both box and cartridge headstamps.
