Help ID the Manufacturer of this 8x58 Danish Krag


#1

Hi,

Can anyone ID the manufacturer of this 8x58 Danish Krag? I don’t have the headstamp code on any of my lists.

Thanks for any information.

This is a SWAG but I’m pretty sure it is “EPPS”, for Elwood Epps of Canada. He was a cartridge dealer for a while, retired some years ago. He had a number of oddball calibers made for shooting. I just turned loose of a .45 Sharps case with a similar headstamp, I can’t remember the size but it was one of the longer ones.
