Iraqi 9mmP box label saved


#1

Below is an Iraqi box I picked up.

Can anyone translate the label?? What about the stamp on the label and box???

It was wrapped in duck tape and I was very concerned about removing it. I did some testing and found that paint thinner from Ace Hardware was my best alternative. Soaking too long makes the glue come off the tape and stay on the label. I worked slow and dribbled a little thinner on at a time and then peeled off a bit of tape when the glue lost it’s adhesiveness but before it came off the cloth backing. Didn’t work perfect but not bad. I cleaned up the bits of tape with a little acetone but had to be careful cause that effects the ink. A good project for a cold Sunday in Atlanta.

Cheers,
