I was wondering if someone has the expertise to help me identify which type of shells are these (see pics). The "P249" I think is a German round, from some Internet research I believe it was produced in Berlin. Also I read that all rounds marked with a "P" should be German. Am I correct in assuming this?

Unfortunately I have no idea what type of rounds are the "bigger" ones, they look like MG rounds to me. Not sure, any help appreciated regarding all these items.

These were found in the '90s in the vicinity of Arad / Romania, during an excavation for construction works. They were all together. Among them some "live rounds" also, but those were given to the Army for disposal.

If these are WW2 related, do they have any collectible value to them?
