Completed auction:

I was watching this one out of curiosity, but don't know if it's the real thing or not. Anyone know? Looks like a neat item if genuine.

It is a real one ... there were a few variations of these, I got a few myself.

Legit, and the price is about right for those. Wish the base pic was a bit better.

Kelt, would this have been a training cartridge, or a type used by armorers to check 'dry' mechanical function (chambering, ejection, extraction)?

It was used in classroom when the recruits were taught how to load and handle safely their rifles, if the large quantity still offered at gun fairs is an indication it was a widespread product, made from early fired case for the head.

The Armourers used gauges made of hard steel for checking loading, headspace, extraction see picture of a No go 2,35mm headspace gauge.

Thank you, that makes sense.
The headspace gauge you pictured looks like those of many other types and calibers. PM sent.
