20mm Hispano case ID - "99289001"


#1

I have a brass Berdan primer 20 x 110 Hispano case. It is stamped simply “99289001” At 12 O’ Clock. How old is this and where was it made?


#2

It is made by Lapua for Sweden.

Thanks

I didnt know that code 992 was Lapua. Does any reference for this information exist?

99289001 can be divided into three parts:
992, manufacturers code(Lapua?)
89, made 1989
001 first lot 1989

Do you know the year of manufacture of the 20x145R?

Thanks SwedishCollector for your information on those markings. I had forgotten all about this case, that is another headstamp completely solved.

  • Well, I have a fired 20mm Hispano [20X110] rimless brass shell case with NO headstamp markings. I don’t see how can I find out any info about the maker and the country of origin. Liviu 12/19/07
