Rolls Razor. A famous British maker of safety razors, that tried switching to producing large appliances in the 50s...and failed miserably. Towards the end of their run, they did land a contract to produce L1A1 mags.

Not sure that they're worth any premium, but they are the most heavily marked of all inch mags.

Phosphated or painted? There were no markings on Australian or Canadian mags.
