    Thank you,, these are quite rare in the fact that made by Achmann Berlin.
    some should have waxed paper caps and not the zinc screw caps, but then again this was transitional,, so some with and some without , wil change 2 of them to waxed cardboard later when i have time,, I'll get round to making a better dispaly of all the WW1 grens soon,,,, Rergards Nick..
