    Are these worth anything?
    I'm told they are 8mm Berthier 1916 infantry rifle rounds.
    As you can see by the box end and head stamp they are dated 1938.
    The other two rounds I haven't a clue on.

    the ammo on clips is 8x56R Steyr, used by Austria and Hungary since 1930 and 1931, respectively. Clips are for modified Steyr M95 rifles.
    Two separate rounds are most probably .303 British (7,7x57R).
