I looked it up in a different site and it said it was a rare headstamp. How rare? The website’s image comes from Ximo and when a headstamp from such a collector is called rare, my ears perk up.

The only thing that would make it uncommon would be the asterisk’s at 9 & 3 as opposed to the more commonly found 5-pointed stars at 9 & 3, but rare? I have only one with that variation vs about 6 with the stars (talking about just ball rounds with the pointed bullet) showing different HS sizes / variations
