Default Few more relic items

I haven't posted any of my latest finds in a while but I've been hunting and finding good stuff so I thought I should start posting while I have the time.

This hunt was back in March. The most interesting thing for me was the silver washed 1945 Mexican 1-cent coin that had been part of a coin bracelet

What are the headstamps on the brass, especially the ones on the lower right of the photo? They look like 8mm mauser brass. Given the other finds that is interesting.
