Hello, I’m interested in chronological setting these headstamps:
- Georg Egestorff, Linden bei Hannover
I present you 5 different headstamps, there are four Mauser M.71 and one Werder. I set it to me from the oldest to the youngest.
A have semicircular bottom and lightly raised big letter “B” (B/H.).
B have typical bottom and big letter “B” (B/H.), crosses are identical as in A.
C have new crosses, and smal letter “b” (b/H.)
D have massive front and contains style of the previous C (dots).
E have delicate front characteristic for production of 1915-1918 years.
Is that in your opinion the correct sequence ? Maybe you know some other font types and Egestorff headstamps ?
- H. Utendoerffer Patronenfabrik, Nürnberg
This case looks more clearly. If you know until what year was written UE instead Ü ? Is it known production of the years stamp in addition to 1875, 1876, 1877 ?
