FES marking on German Projectiles


#1

Could someone please translate the FES marking for me on German projectiles that have the steel driving bands ?? Thank you. Bill

Bill, it is actually no steel but sintered iron. A translation is hard since the “FE” stands for the chemical abbreviation of iron (guess from the Latin “ferrum”) and the “S” for “sintered”.

Thanks EOD. I thought maybe it had a German translation and, as I don’t speak German, I was pretty much at a loss. I appreciate the response. Bill
