Krag56 - Very nice collection of shotshells! They look “psychedelic”. What company(s) made those that you have?

All these shells were made (either by SFM and MGM) for Manufrance.

The exact name of the company was
Manufacture d’Armes de St Etienne (from 1885 to 1905)
then Manufacture Francaise d’Armes et Cycles de St Etienne (from 1905 to 1911)
then Manufrance (after 1911 to 1980)

Jeanpierre- Thank you for the explanation on the manufacturers!

I must find some of these shot shells to add to my collection one day!
