[OSGeo-Discuss] PROJCS vs LOCAL_CS

Hi  all!

I have png map file, .pwg World file and .prj file with projection in
WKT format.
I try to create GeoTIFF with next command:
  gdal_translate -of GTiff -a_srs O-50-103-D.prj O-50-103-D.png

but, gdalinfo printf LOCAL_CS coordinate system instead PROJCS, so
different applications like QLandkarteGT can't open result GeoTiff.

Why coordinate system is LOCAL_CS, but not PROJCS?

My example files in archive:

testepsg tool say that prj file is correct.

Thanks for any help!
