Bob, here you can see an ad from 1953. The special crimp was patented in 1946.

Nice, they do look like little artillery shells!

It would be a lot of fun to build a miniature Howitzer to fire them.

Really. A howitzer firing size 4 and 10 shot. Look out ducks.
I heard that cannister in 105mm is much better. Ha Ha. Ron.

Made for a gun store In Florence (Firenze) named after the patron saint of hunters…St Hubert; the Stag with the cross is the symbol of St.Hubert across Europe…and is also the trade mark of JaegerMiester, a rather nice herbal liqueur made in ?Austria/Germany by monks of St. HUBERTUS’s order.
Jaeger Meister…master hunter.
