Unlike the XM200 Blanks being advertised now for commercial sales, that are actually factory "seconds" of standard M200 Blanks (those that don't meet some minor aspect of military specifications), these are the original predecessor to the M200 Blank, prior to NATO adoption.
 
Brass case with knurled cannelure above extractor groove (for identification), brass, percussion, non-corrosive, boxer primer, red primer sealant, ring primer crimp with 7 finger case mouth rose crimp.  Two different packaging, one with the red ink "Dangerous Within 20 Feet" warning (Lot #18089), and one without (Lot # 18027).
 
20-round, standard tan cardboard boxes with black ink markings.  Twin Cities, MN production. 
 
Oddly enough, the earlier lot (18027) has the later headstamp TW 71 vs TW 69.  Also, the earlier lot has a clear case mouth sealant, as opposed to the later's white case mouth sealant.   Being XM, they do not carry the NATO cross/circle headstamp symbol.
