Hi JP

It Is F E C, at 6 it has another E and at the center a 9 with a dot.
Really do not know what it stands for.

Daniel, great boxes, thank you very much for sharing.

The FEC headstamp was made for Ferdinand Esser & Co. of Elberfeld, Germany. Here is a previous thread on the subject: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=15723&p=112328

Thank you.

What is the source to say that FEC headstamped ctges were made by Cureghem ?

Not a spanish label box for a German guy I think.

JP, all the examples I have seen come from these Spanish language SCB boxes. Also, .450 Revolver cartridges with F.E.C. headstamp are very similar to those made by this Belgian company (e.g., lettering style, stars and knurled bullet).

This German company also had a Spanish named branch trading as Fernando Esser y Compañía that was established in 1874 in Habana, Cuba, and exported to several Central and South American countries (cartridges has only been reported in Argentina and Uruguay). They also traded from a branch established in Paris in 1890 that also used the same Spanish name.

Regards,

Fede
