This is Egyptian.

The markings read:

UAR - Abbreviation for United Arab Republic

303 - Calibre

10 - Factory 10 (Alexandria)

70 - Year - 1970


#3

I think the year is actually '80.

Hi Rich,
I’ll go along with Jon. The right symbols look like A.R.E. Arab Republic of Egypt. (1971-???)
303 on the bottom. 80 left. 10 on top. My best guess.

I have a way of writing the numbers but how do I write UAR in Arabic/Egyption

Rich.


#6

Rich, this may be of help:
branah.com/arabic

Thanks EOD I have tried that but when I type UAR in it comes up looking nothing like what is on my headstamp

thanks
Richard


#8

As Dan said, in 1980 it would be ARE, no longer UAR.


#9

Rich, of course you need to know the Arabic spelling as that what you used is the translation of the wording already.


#10

I dont think you are understanding what I mean, when I translate ARE or UAR what I get looks nothing like what is on the headstamp pictured.

Thanks
Richard.


#11

I think I do, you just do not type the 2 abbreviations you mentioned as the Arab wording is not starting with these letters.


#12

AHHH it makes sence to me now thank you so I just cant do a direct translation of the letters, I will just put a photo in my catalouge.

many thanks
Richard
