Default Request ID 2 shells casing

Guys,

Way out of my area ( although I'm sure they ain't WW 2 German), can someone help me in identifying below markings on 2 shell casings?

Also
Regards

Jan B

First one

It reads 90 MM M517/1 and MMJ 13-47 - no other markings found.

90mm ammo for the M47 and M48 Patton tank as well as the German Kanonejagdpanzer tank destroyer.
"LOS MKE 37" i believe is made in Makina ve Kimya Endüstrisi Kurumu, Turkey
MMJ = SARL MINNESOTA DE FRANCE, PARIS ????????

Thank you for your reply. Forgive me my ignorance but can I conclude that both are postwar NATO/Bundeswehr then?

Regards,
