Found two very unusual cartridges in a bucket of range brass given by a friend recently.

Two live rounds of 7.92x33. No fired brass, though.

The headstamp is, in both cases:

St 2 44 oxo

Casings and slugs are steel. They've acquired a bit of patina from weather and exposure, cases slightly rusty, but are in good shape otherwise. Of all the types of live rounds to find, 7.92x33!

Does anybody know what the headstamp might mean? Year of manufacture, factory?

I am always looking for boxes for my collection and pics from labels for my book about the development and production of the German Kurzpatrone 43 m.E. ( 7.92x33) Label Font
