1918 German 6.35 box


#1

I recently acquired this 25 round box.
It came with
Nine - C/6/18 headstamped cartridge
One - C/5/18
Three - RM Star S Star
Can someone interpret the old style German print.
I am most interested in the second to last line just above the 10.7.18
Is this a Cassel box?
Who manufactured this?
Thanks,
Bob R

25 scharfe
Pistolenpatronen
zur Selbstladepistole.
Kaliber 6,35
Gefertigt Mfc
am 10.7.18

Mfc could be Munitionsfabrik Cassel
but I would have expected to see a capital C then

Expecting a capital C for Cassel (or today Kassel) is right, but the code was indeed Mfc. A similarly surprising example is Dc for Dreyse & Collenbusch.
