7.62 w 51mm headstamps


#1

Just added two new cartridges to the collection, but need help in identifying the origin of the first and the history of the second

Ball (GMCS), Br cs and pr, green PA. HS 7.62 FEM-SB-80 The cartridge was in a bag marked Spain. The SB suggests a possible link to Spain but the bullet is GMCS which is unusual for Spanish 7.62mm NATO

Spanish light blue plastic training cartridge, Br case head, Ni pr. HS CASCALES P.O-91

Thanks

The headstamp doesn’t look like Spanish to me, but Santa B

Thanks for the history on these two headstamps - it’s great when the background on an unusual headstamp comes to light.
