    A guy over at IAA suggested that it was a Swedish made HS 404. The tell tale clues are two segment lines and stamp of a stylized crown and if you look closely, there is actually something just below the KE 5179 stamp that could resemble a crown. It is very hard to see in the picture, but looking at it in real life, it is just visible.

    The marking is not following the Danish scheme of markings, and I do not think that the crown looks like the Swedish marking. I think the figures are quite crude stamped - looking as they were stamped once at a time ! "XF" could also be a marking for a "Experimental Fuse" or something like it. I hink the marking looks too crude to be from a production line and could be experimental ammunition.

    Just my point of view.... :-)
