.38 Special Box and ammo by Gevelot, which timeframe?


Hi, here a box of 50 38 Special Wadcutter ammo from Gevelot. I want to knew, when this boxdesign was about used? Timeframe ok…Thx again, Peter


It seems Gévelot (SFM) had his headquarters in rue Ampère somewhere from the mid thirties. I don’t think they produced such ammunition during occupation. After the war, rue Ampère continued as headquarter at least till 1954, according invoices I found on the www. As everything on the box is in French, I would date it between 1935 and 1940.
