many thanks for all help.

It is Greek but I can not fully transliterate it.

HI EOD,

At least now I know where it is from.

Thanks a lot. rené

ΚΑΛΥΚΟΠΟΙΕΙΟΥ = Cartridge
EΛΛ. = Electric
ΠΥΡΙΤ = Flint

So it would mean “cartridge with electric firing cap”


#5

Electric “flint” or primer could lean towards engine starter cartridge.

René and others, this is Greek abbreviated spelling for Greek Powder & Cartridge [Co. Ltd.].


#7

Could “EΛΛ” be “Ellinikos” some wording for “Greece” or “Greek” ?

Greek Powder and Cartridge Co Ltd
