MB 39 - 9.5 X 42R MB UTENDOERFFER "b" TYPE

    

This is MB39 from Dixon. There are at least four variations of 9.5x42R MB case types (MB37-MB40) plus a different 9.5x42R B case (MB154). RWS/Utendoerffer listed four variations in their c1900 catalog: b, b/a, d, d/a . Egestorff and Lorenz listed two types. The Utendoerffer "b" type appears to be the same as Lorenz case #22 c1878. The case has a lower more gradual shoulder than the "d" types. The Utendoerffer 1877 catalog showed both the "B" and "MB" case construction types with quite different shoulder positions.

This type was also listed by Stahl, Egestorff and Roth. Roth examples with the case number style hs (ie "GR/*/161/*/") and also military style hs (eg. "GR/18/II/78/") exist.
