Help identifying a 9x19


#1

Hello,

I need some help identifying the manufacturer of this round please? I showed it to a friend but the headstamp is small and she found it somewhat difficult to see the characters clearly. The picture isn’t much better (sorry).

The top appears to be the letters n r th
Bottom right 27 or 37
Bottom left 58

Here it is with the colour inverted, which possibly makes it a little easier to see the top.

Any ideas?

This one is Egyptian in origin, correct?


#3

Factory #27 (Shoubra Company for Engineering Industries) out of 1975 if I am not mistaken.

Thanks EOD - yes, you are correct, it is 1975. Any idea what the text at the top actually reads?

ARE - Arab Republic of Egypt. I can’t recall the year they dropped the UAR, United Arab Republic.
