I see it says its for submachine guns and pistols, but is it corrosive and where does it come from? Any help appreciated.

I bet Spanish and it is labeled for Submachine gun and pistol. Corrosive for sure and 68 years old. Shoot?...hang fire?...dud? I wouldn’t pay a “crazy” price for 68 year old Spanish 9mm. Same goes for the Egyptian 9mm.

Yes, definitely Spain...looks like 1955. I wouldn't pay anything for that (or the Egyptian), not as shooting or collecting ammo.
Too bad the owner held on to it for so long.

It looks like ammunition made in the Spanish State for the "subfusil" M41/44 copy of the German Erma Maschinenpistole, although the vast majority of those were in 9mm Largo instead of the 9x19mm Parabellum in the box. Interesting that the nick-name "Schmeisser" is printed on the box.

The Star Z-45 might be another 9mm "subfusil," current for 1952 or whenever... Based on the German MP-40 with a trigger that could be manipulated for single shot or for firing a burst.
