.30-06 "U.S.C.Co.17" pencil cartridge

What is the meaning of Fleur-de-Lis like ornament on the cartridge wall? Below it in the 1st photo is an “FA 39” for comparison.

One I’ve not seen before, but I’d think the Fleur-de-Lis would be for the French market, as it is an otherwise somewhat typical post-war WW I souvenir.

Very nice & well made round Vlad.
