    Could be either Hall's Telegraph Co., Burghfield, UK, or Cartoucherie de Valence, Valence, France.

    Without seeing them, it's hard to know for sure.

    You'll also run across some marked LC, and I believe the year is 62, but not sure. It will be Berdan and was made in China.

    Hope this helps.
