Interesting, it is an Italian language label that reads “Scatola [box] cartucce [cartridges] Browning da 25 Cal. 6.35 Fr. 4.50 Silvio Cavaleri Chiasso”. The last word is the name of a city in the lower part of the Canton of Ticino, Switzerland, a few kilometers from the Italian border. Silvio Cavaleri had a gun and bycycle shop in this city between 1908 and 1951.

Bonjour Bob and Fede, I like to wake up, read the forum, realising that the only answer I could have given about my country has already been made by Fede ! Your are too quick for me. Chiasso is really a border town with Italy in sunny Ticino. Not a lot of gunshop left in that part of Switzerland. Today, Swiss ctgs collector’s meeting! Hope to find interesting ones…

And the box costed at that time 4,5 Swiss francs.
