Hi Fede,

Nice example!!

This same logo is also used on shells made with the Lepco brand written.
Lepco stand for Le Personne & Co. from London

This name has been discussed here before.

Hola Daniel,

This shotshell was introduced by Spreafico in the late 1950’s (my earliest reference is 1959). Below you can see an ad from 1962.

Un saludo grande,

Fede
