My .44-60 Sharps, Necked, round nosed lead bullet has raised solid 5-point stars at 9 and 3 o’clock. Head is simular to a UMC and is Berdan No. 1 primed. Any idea of the maker?
I have a 44-77 Sharps and 44-100 2-5/8 Necked Sharps and a 44-105 2- 5/8 Necked with 2 stars on the head at 9 and 3 o’clock and was told that these where target cartridges. These where made by UMC.
Interesting, Ron…MY .44-60 Sharps, necked, round nosed lead bullet has raised solid 5-point stars at 12 and 6 o’clock.
IHMSA80x80–That is interesting. I’ll have to look for that variation. I have been told that the stars sometimes occur at 11 & 4 and 10 & 5. I think it must be a date code.
