Just a wild guess - Fort Scott Company? There is an outfit
making ammo called Fort Scott, and while in the beginning they
used other’s brass, they have had their own headstamp, at least
on 9 mm Para. Not near my collection right now, and forget the
actual headstamp used, but it was not that one, so I may be way
off the mark with my guess.

A starting point for research, anyway.

A pic would be nice to see the font. The Fort Scott headstamps I have are all FSM and then caliber. Maybe they use more.
