    First pic looks just like the 7.62x54R Russian stuff I bought a couple years ago, I chucked the tin but that looks the same to me. Pic 2 I got nothing but Will could well be right on the Finnish 53.

    The green tin looks like 1984 Soviet production; copper washed steel case; 147 grain steel core boat tail spitzer; 20 round paper wrapped bundles / 22 bundles / 440 rounds per tin.

    The galvanized tin is more difficult (for me)... I think it's 1953 Polish production (that's the 'L' with the little line through it, and the rest of the markings are consistent with Polish production; the '21' in the segmented circle is a Polish plant designation and I think will be found on the headstamp); I believe the 'C' means "heavy bullet" and corresponds to the Soviet type 'D' bullet; The 'St.' means a steel case (lacquered), which would correspond to the Soviet 'GS' case type. I'm guessing that in keeping with the standard Soviet packaging of the time it will be a 300 round tin on stripper clips.

    The first (green) tin is 7.62 x 54r 440rds mfd in 84'. It is mil surplus and corrosive. you will be surprised
    how pristine it is given its age.
    If we all agreed....this would be no fun
