Hi Jean Pierre, about the book by Manuel Fernadez Villegas “Identificación de Cartuchería de Percusión Anular” this headstamp is by Marcel Gaupillat & Cie. (lion in relief).

Hello

  1. The Lion is on a harrow in your book ?

  2. If yes it would be : made by SFM for Marcel Gaupillat ?

I doubt. I think it is rather for a customer.

  1. Anyway I will check in my Marcel Gaupillat trade marks.
    Thanks very much for the info

Desolé JP, but after seeing carefully the logo of the headstamp I have my doubts, it looks like but it is not the same…I send you photo

Hi JP.
I don’t know about the lion with the arrow, but the normal raised Lion, which JJAM showed was made for Vie, Francotte & Mai, Leige. Dummy rounds showed up in a salesmans sample case with the headstamp.

Cheers,
Will.

Only a hint…
This mark looks almost identical as the old mark of Peugeot Fréres, France.(Peugeot mark here - first line in the table) I found a picture with title “World War I. Peugeot factory of Beaulieu (France) requisitioned for the manufacture of shells. Ca. 1915.” (here)
I don´t know anything about this manufacture…

I know Peugeot used to sell shotguns. perhaps they used to sell also Fobert Carbines.
and the ammo coming with them
