Shotshells ID?


#1

I would welcome any information about these 3 shotshells.

No. 1 is it German or British ( or perhaps something else?):

No. 2:


No. 3:

HI Lars,

Nice ones.
I have the Löwe/Lion listed is German but cannot show any proof!
The others I have never seen before, but that Bugle Brand is a real beauty!!

regards rené

Lars, no. 1 was made for Wolff & Co. in Walsrode, Germany. This trademark was filled in 1931 and granted in 1932. Regards, Fede.


#4

The # 2 looks British, but with a case made in either Germany or France. I have some similar in other colored hulls & with case print, but have not been able to pin the maker down.


#5

For #1, I have another one that has Marke Lowe and a lion picture on the headstamp. Same case, but different headstamp.


#6

Great, thank you for your help
Lars

I also have the Lowe (Lion) marked as German but Fede has clarified that to be correct.
And No 2 I have a note as Imported by Mullerite Cartridge Works Birmingham and a big “?” question mark afterwards.
I have a couple of different ones, all have Mullerite Over Shot Cards.
The Bugle is a really nice case and I have not seen it before.

Pics of No 2.

HI everybody,
I have a possible ID of the Bugle Brand shells.
A very friendly collector gave me this picture.
The shells are inside this box.
I know it is not 100% ID but anyway.

Regards rené

Hi René

Great info - it makes sense. The logo looks like a Waldhorn = Bugle, and there is a German cartridges named Waldhorn. The cartridge (Bugle) could be an export cartridges from Gecado ( Selve-K-D).

Hi Lars, here is a scan of “The Bugle Brand” shotshell from the Gecado price list No. 2. Regards, Fede.
