Okay... maybe an old one.  I just saw this on GB and had never heard of the 5mm Clement..., so a quick Wiki search found this:

"The 5 mm Clement is a centerfire  cartridge produced for early self-loading pocket pistols made Charola-Anitua and a 1903 design by Clement. The steeply conical, bottle-necked case is semi-rimmed, but headspaces  on the shoulder of the case. The long bullet was inadequately stabilized and tended to tumble in flight. The Charola-Anitua pistol was produced in very limited numbers, and Clement pistol production shifted to the .25 ACP cartridge after 1906.[1]"

Sounds like they had some kind of "Remington" illness/problems!

And this from a UK site:

Pretty cool !!

PS: The guy that's selling these on GB (box of 100 cartridges) thinks they are made out of solid gold!  $850 w/a BIN of $1K.  Some folks are just insane.
