And here's the ones I thought were Belgian. Prolly not, though. You can't really see it, but the headstamp says "04" and "60"

1st pick in the group is Prve Partizan, P135 is original German, The last one does indeed look like Egyptian. The 04, 60 is 1960 made East German

NNY is Cyrillic for PPU - Yugo Prvi-Partisan

P315 is German (Potsdam)

The one that looks like PS (not the best pic) could be Czech.

Still working on the other

That's guys! None of them are collectible, are they? Just ammo to shoot?

I do have a box of FN "steel" 8mm cartridges. They are nickel-copper alloy jacketed, with a steel core. Every collector I show them to at gun shows have never seen them.
