It came out of a soviet ammo can made in 1947. I didn't take the pic so I have no idea why it is so blurry.

It ain't Russian. It's Lithuanian. It reads: All your base are belong to us. What you have there is the very first meme.

You're right, LG. I was just testing you to see if you knew Russian. I Googled your translation and found this:

I tried to run it through this OCR:

On the plus side I just listened to my first audio captcha. It was surprisingly intense.

Let's try to solve this without any outside help from anybody who does know the answer until we collectively get close and give or proclaim we have the answer.

I'll start by re-posting the original image, followed by an image of the Russian alphabet.





I guess we can assume that there are only 5 words, therefore...

1. O ...

2. P ...

3. ...

4. ...

5. ...

That's the best I can do. Now help out by placing in some letters.

Does it look like the second word has exactly 8 letters in it and starts with P?

Let's agree on the letter count of all five words, safely assuming that there are only five.

There two names of responsible persons (first is family name "Rodionov", and second person put his signature which is not fully readable)

First person was responsible for technological process (something related to Zink protection from corrosion)

Second person was responsible for distribution and access control.
Probably he approved shipping from factory or from another storage place

---

After some thinking, there might be another possibility:

the second person is technical controller.

"k otk" might be the "department of technology checking"

This seems most believable to me. Why is it so difficult to interpret? Bad handwriting?

Because too little information I see. I don't know the exact process, but
the people who made this paper had that knowledge. So they have more context to understand that writings.

From the person who found it:

Quote
interesting. the ammo came in a wooden sealed crate. inside the wooden crate were two metal, sealed tins with the ammo inside. the metal was covered in some sort of white powdery residue. is some areas there seemed to be less of this residue and this is also where slight surface rust appeared on the sealed tins. the slip of paper was sitting on top of the two tins. if it is an inspection slip of sort, it wouldn't be the first time i've found one. just never a hand written one like this. i'll dig out another one.

I see 6 words

The bottom line states:

I amm Kaput

It's written on a brown grocery store bag paper with purple ink. A ball point pen was not used, possibly a fountain pen.

Neat observation about the use of a fountain pen. Now that you've brought it up, it explains the dark areas in the letters as if stopping, then restating after a refill. The tip of the pen would have been heavy-laden with ink until the writing process commenced anew.

I keep thinking about the shirt image I posted above. Although it was a joke at the time, I envision it being worn at certain functions, i.e. OWS, and when somebody ask what is means, one can honestly reply, "If you don't know, then I can't tell you." I would suggest two major changes though: not yellow and a very small Bitcoin logo place about the same place you would see a Playboy Bunny logo on said brand shirts. If the conversation seems to end without being ask further questions, kindly state that it's Bitcoin related, whereupon a whole dialog is now started about Bitcoin. If the Russian message is revisited, either still state you can't relay the message and/or point them to this thread.

Therefore, if this idea ever comes to fruition, and somebody is now reading this post because they saw such a shirt, remember that it was my (Bruno) idea and not Matthew's.

First line: "Oshinovshich" -- surname
Second line: "Rodionov" -- another surname
Third line: "k o... Kari..." -- "Kari..." is the signature with end of surname degraded to pen stroke
"k o..." -- illegible, most likely rank or position. Probably "commander of squad"
