Hello cartridge collectors and gun experts,
I am seeking proof that these cartridges (see headstamps) could have been manufactured in or before 1963
These cartridges were found in Dealey Plaza, in 1987 by John Rademacher, some 3 inches in the ground. The left one has a dent in it, which was verified to be a human teethmark.
In 1994, James Files, after he was tracked down by a private investigator, made a confession that he had fired the fatal headshot from behind the picket fence and bit down on the casing nd left it on a sidebar of the picket fence.
Alan Eaglesham , a persistent discreditor of James Files’ story has just written an article that alleges the headstamp proves it was manufactured after 1970.
I know this is bull, but appreciate your help in disproving the allegation.
More to the story here:
So the question is: Was the short dash (or better a dot) between the R - P on the headstamp, in use in the 1960’s?
Here are some pictures of headstamps I was told are from that timeframe.
I was also told that both the dash and dot headstamps were printed in that era, and that there was more than one company making ammunition for Remington. A conglomerate.
There’s more discussion on this issue on my forum:
Thanks in advance for your help. I am not asking anyone to believe James Files. Just for proof that the cartridges could have been manufactured in or before 1963.
