[I'll send you one with spent primer, no powder and bullet seated.. ]

Just as a good rule of thumb, a spent primer is not a good indication of a dummy cartridge. A hole drilled into or through the case to verify there is no powder is highly recomended.

About 10 years ago a 1873 Springfield rifle being shown in a youth firearms safety class in Minnesota was discharged into the ceiling. One of the other instructors had a 45-70 cartridge in his collection that had a struck primer, well it was thought to be a dummy because of the firing pin strike.
So no primer or a hole through the case is the only way we are allowed to bring ammo displays into a class.

And as Pahoo says,
Be Safe!
