Default Markings on the sprgr43

Hi!
This markings can be read on the side of the HE 88 grenade (inert/empty)
About this marking we get knowable information about the gun (fired from tank gun or anti tank gun?)
Thanks

There was no information on the shell about kind of gun. Only codes of shell producer and filling plant, series number and driving bands of soft iron = FES.
Gun types were stenciled on cartridge case only.

The ammunition for 8,8cm Kw.K.43 and 8,8cm PaK.43 was the same. Both guns had 32 grooves in the barrel.
