Who made this cartridge ? When ?


Thanks for your help.

This one was made by K. & Yu. Bekker of Warsaw back when Poland was part of the Russian Czarist empire.
As the company changed names several times the shown naming was used from 1860 to 1889.

Thank you EOD !

Yves and Alex, the Latin name of this company was C. & J. Bekker. Below you can see an ad from 1887.

Fede, thanks a lot for the Latin variant. I only had the Cyrillic before wich explains the “Yu” vs. the “J”.
Will ammend the database accordingly.

Great info.
And a great shell!
Would love to find one.

I have the headstamp from a metal detector find.
