44-40 with groove base


#1

  1. How do you call this kind of base ? (grooved ?)

  2. Among the different manufacturings is it one of the firts one ?
    For example is it older than the same hstp but without grooved base ?

  3. Is it scarce (value?)

thanks

I THINK MOST COLLECTORS REFER TO THIS TYPE OF HEADSTAMP AS; RAISED HEADSTAMP IN A DEPRESSED CIRCLE. YES, IT IS A BIT OLDER THAN THE SAME IMPRESSED HEADSTAMP. VALUE, FOR THIS CALIBER, AROUND $10.00 TO $15.00. U.M.C. MANUFACTURED THIS TYPE OF HEADSTAMP IN .32-40, .38CF., .38-55,. 40-60 (WINCHESTER), .40-60 (MARLIN), .44 CF., .45-70 (GOVERNMENT), AND .45-85. (BULLARD). WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS Co. ALSO MANUFACTURED SEVERAL CALIBERS USING THE RAISED HEADSTAMP IN A DEPRESSED CIRCLE, AS EXAMPLE, 40-60 (MARLIN), 40-90 S.S., AND 44 W.C.F.
