    Yep, white tip is also tracer, originally used to distinguish between hot tracer(red flame) or observation(Smoke)

    Would you have any qualms about shooting it? I would sell the tracer and the WW1 aged packs in paper though.

    The 1909 packets are worth far too much as what they are to shoot.

    I wouldn't shoot the 1917 two either, nor the 1934. The '34 would also be interesting to examine to see what DAC was doing between the wars.

    BTW, the match ammo they produced every year for the DCRA was given different patterns and colours of lacquer bands each year.

    What value would you put on those packets?

    Value of is subjective on three things that come to mind, availibility, the buyers desire and how deep their wallet is its hard to value stuff; example a single Kynoch .33 BSA round retails for @$80/Ea if you can get them as they were only produced for 2 years (1923 - 1925), I have a pristine unopened yellow packet of 10 rounds 165Gn Solid and no one is going to pay $800 for that packet as its the only one I have seen unopened or at all in many years of cartridge collecting think guys like RCS, Green & Surpmil would agree on this.

    Just dial in cartidges for sale on google you will usually get some dealers who sell collections etc and get an idea from that @15 years ago I paid $20 for an unopened paper packet of 10 - 1912 Cordite 215 RN's

    Not less than $75 CAD each, and that may be quite low. Not sure what the market is like these days.
