11mm Pin fire
|It seems like a change of century came quick. Just compare this box from 1899 to the next from 1901 and you will find the change in font, from this old type to a more modern in the label of 1901. |

|This is a unusual box of 7,5 mm Nagant blanks, manufactured at the Marieberg factory at 1901.|
|This box contains 50 pcs of star crimped blank ammo intended for the use in the m/87 revolver. The ammunition is for the use of dog training. As there is no blank fire device for the revolver, there is a regulation of use printed on the box saying "pointed fire may not be given against living targets on a distance closer than 5 meters".|
Thank you Colt for this image.
