Ed,

Thanks for the new headstamp submissions. :-0

I'll try to get the headstamp guide updated soon to include all of your submissions plus any others that haven't yet been added.

I could not find this head stamp in our gallery. Hopefully someone can identify it.

7.62 NATO Caliber M62 Tracer, orange tip, brass case, brass percussion boxer non-corrosive primer. ring primer crimp, no visible primer sealant. 147 grain bullet with knurled crimp cannelure.   From tan 20-round cardboard box with black printing.  Sample is from a lot of "factory seconds" from Lake City Army Ammunition Plant, but marketed by Federal Ammunition for the commercial US market as "XM62."  Original DoD intended production that failed QC acceptance standards, usually for appearances.  In this example tip colors ranged from 90% to virtually missing.  Circa 2010  Unlike other examples of LC headstamps in the AFTE DB, this (being 7.62) doesn't have the "dot" headstamp markings of SCAMP production.  Except for box markings, might easily be confused with "stolen" miliitary inventory.

1956 production .303 Caliber by Radway Green of UK.  Copper percussion Berdan primer, ring crimp, purple primer sealant.  Ball projectile, smooth bullet cannelure, brass case.  From 32 round tan cardboard box with gray label and green printing.  Black ink lot number rubber stamped.   In this example, the Mark # in the headstmap is numeric rather than a Roman Numeral

.50 BMG (12.7x99) caliber M33 Ball, imported for the civilian/commercial US market in 2010.  From Olive Drab M2A1 ammunition cans, linked 4:1 with M17 Tracer.  (Tracers removed before distribution.)  Brass case, nickel percussioin primer, green primer sealant, ring primer crimp.  FMJBT bullet, copper jacket, mild steel core, twin (smooth) bullet cannelures (1 ID, 1 crimping).  Produced by Charter Industries Singapore (now ST Kinnetics).  Headstamp code is caliber & date, (not mfgr code) and translates to 1989 production
