These are cartridges for the Lefaucheux revolver. This is the “short” pinfire cartridge; with lead bullet seated into a copper case with a stout pin protruding from the bottom edge. This features the headstamp, “* FUSNOT * BRUXELLES” which is typically difficult to read.  Manufactured by Charles Fusnot (Fabrique de Balles et Cartouches) in Bruxelles, Belgium.

Pinfire cartridges were another example of a self-contained cartridge. The “pin” rests in a percussion cap seated in the bottom of the case.  When struck by the pistol hammer, the pin exploded the cap igniting the powder charge.

Pinfire cartridges were made in 2mm (blanks for watch fob pistols), 5mm, 7mm, 9mm, 12mm, 15mm, and for various gauge shotguns. These were primarily made in Europe for the Lefaucheux revolver and were measured in millimeters.  [jet] [ph:jet]
