Secunda 12 Ga pinfire


Anyone know who made this. It does not show up well in the picture, but the headstamp is SECUNDA 12 Ga according to the fellow who has it.



For lack of any other responses, may I offer a guess?

I’ve not a clue as to who made it, but perhaps the term “secunda” could possibly be translated to mean “second” as in “second quality”?



Seems logical to me. Another bit of information is that it was found in the Czech Republic, so it is possible that it was made by Sellier & Bellot.


SECUNDA is “Second” in Romanian.

Also, part of coastal Romania and northern Bulgaria used to be called “Moesia Secunda”
