SFM Modele normal

Hi,
I have found this old 20 Ga shotshell.
Could anybody perhaps help me with the headstamp.
I understand it is SFM, but what does the model normal means??

Sorry for the poor picture!

regards rené

Hi JeanPierre,
Rimthicknes is 1.56 mm
base at the rim is 19.15 mm
and just above the rim 17.55 mm

I do not have a side view but the case is plain dark blue without any printing on it.

many regards rené

Hi JP,

Many thanks for the info.
It is the only one I ever saw of these, are they common?

A ctge with this particular hstp I don’t have in my collection.
It must be pretty uncomon.

Some Manufacture Francaise d’Armes & de Cycles de st Etienne have also Normal in their hstp. they are more common.
