    Headstamp Markings on a French(?) 37mm Shell Case?

    Hi Folks -

    Picked up this 37mm case with some Trench Art on it, and some interesting stamping and ink stamps on it, on eBay.

    From what I can read on the ink stamps, it is:
    "C.4.16"
    "BN 5 FAO5"
    "C.1.16.R."

    ... and something else I can't quite make out.

    I do like the Artwork also, simple but well done.

    Any help on the ink stamp and the regular stamps into metal appreciated.

    Best regards!
    - Mike

    Thanks Yoda! I am wondering if the ink stamps represent an Field Artillery Unit, possibly the "5th Batallion. Field Artillery Ordnance" and the date??
