    Hello,
    EF is the maker : Emaillierwerke AG
    68 is the size of the shell
    4858 means that it's the 4858th shell produced in the lot
    Thanks

    Now that I just hurt my neck by twisting it looking at your helmet, the 4858 is the lot# or sometimes called "heat #" There can be hundreds of helmets exhibiting that lot#. All in all, looks like a real German WW2 shell.
    By the way...your welcome !!
