I had this given to me yesterday while I was on the stand at the Northern Shooting Show as they know I like big bore cartridges.
I had not seen this type of side (impressed) printing on an 8 bore case before.
1). Head Stamp.
2). Side View.
3). Close-Up of Stamping A
4). Close-Up of Stamping B
Can anybody give me a manufacturing date please?
I would place it circa 1890’s!
