Monark 38 Special box


#1

What is the meaning of a hand-written note in the 3rd photo?




#2

if none of the native speakers are answering, I’LL give it a try.
I read something like:

Do not use until [color=red]REM 1.7 (?)[/color] its ben used enough

no clue however what that means . . . .


#3

I think it may read:

Do not use until Rem. has been used enough.

Saving it for something special, I suppose.


#4

It looks to me like

DO NOT USE UNTIL REM HHS BEN USED ENOUGH

I would interpret HHS should be “has” and BEN should be “been”

Looks like someone was doing a bit of stock rotation. Possibly, given that its .38 Spec a Police Dept or similar a few decades back.
