so that “33” must be a load number? Certainly looks to have DuPont influence to the advert.
What gage is the shell?

Daniel, great display, thanks!

Pete, that is a brand name but also a number with historical significance for Uruguay, since “33” was the symbolic number of founding members of a revolutionary group named “Los Treinta y Tres Orientales” (Thirty-Three Orientals) that started an insurrection in the Oriental Province against the Empire of Brazil and whose actions culminated in the foundation of Uruguay.
