It is United Arab Republic (Egypt & Syria). Used 1959-1971.

'UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC (AL-GUMHURIYAH AL-ARABIYAH AL-MUTTAHIDAH)

You will also find cases with the 1st and 2nd characters in the headstamp reversed. This was used 1972-1990. This was after Syria pulled out of the allience.

'ARAB REPUBLIC OF EGYPT (GUMHURIYYAT MISR AL-ARABIYYAH)

The characters at 6 o’clock are the number 12.

And just to tie all the knots together…I would assume the headstamp is on a 12 ga. shotshell.

And the primer is Polish. Maybe a hint for where the case machinery came from.
