    Default Trying to identify Spanish Civil War cases

    I'm trying to identify these 2 different cases if anyone can help or point me in the right direction, I have looked at the sticky but apart from noticing the different primer seating marks am not too sure, hopefully the pics will come up, I am new to the forum and have joined in order to identify these if I can but may come across more due to now living in an area where there was fighting, thanks and all the best.

    The measurements are approx, just using a steel rule, calibre approx 7-8mm, case length appears the same at 56mm but the neck of each case is different, am not sure how to describe the narrow portion of the casing but the empty case is longer

    The case with the AI marking appears to be a 7.9x57mm round,the headstamp is Dutch,I can`t read the other markings on the other case......Pete.... It seems I was wrong and the AI marking is German, sorry.
