Help with Geco catridges and the question about steel casings.

Post by Sergey Romanov » 22 Feb 2020 16:46

1. Does anyone have Geco catalogs/price lists for a) 1931, b) 1932?

I want to verify that the cal. 7,65 headstamp changes between these years (the letters "D" disappeared).

2. Did Genschow & Co. produce any steel 7,65 casings from 1939 to 1941?

3. What is the most detailed source on the use of steel for the production of casings in the war-time Germany? Is it true that from 1941 on all or most casings were steel ones and not brass ones? Is the year even right?

Hi Sergey:

Does your request have to do with the Katyn Forest Massacre?
