The quandrants are separated by lines.
My psychic powers tell me that these cases are rimmed, have a slight taper, and are approximately 56mm in length.

How'm I doin' so far?

Wartime berdan-primed 8x56mmR for a Steyr-Mannlicher. Before Graf's started selling new-production reloadable ammunition, it was worth saving the Jerry stuff to try and reload it. Now? Unless you have some antique brass collecting fetish, I'd just toss it.
