ID these old cases?

Blanks or some other special round? They are 30-06, all have been fired and were found in an old army Dodge Power Wagon a friend of mine is restoring. They all have the heavy crimp on the neck and are very rounded over but open at the mouth. I cleaned them up a little for him. He wants to put them back in the truck when it is done. Head stamps are LC 52 and FA 51.
Blanks. Lake city and frankfort assenal.
Geri is correct, With a BFA (Blank firng attachment) they will operate an M-1 semi auto.
Right, blanks. That heavy crimp retained a red card wad over the EC Blank powder.
A number of guns have been blown up by seating a bullet over blank powder. Don't do it.
I was given a big bunch of those 50+ years ago. Once you get the neck crimp and the primer crimp out of them they make reloadable cases. I'm still using some of them. A question asked and answered long ago in the American Rifleman magazine said they were OK to reload...good enough for me.
