Another 9mm Luger headstamp


#1

All,

I just acquired a 9x19mm cartridge with a headstamp: * M * 1930. That is “star” M “star” at the top and 1930 at the bottom. Who produced this cartridge?

Thanks

Pat

Never seen or heard of an “* M * 1930” hst. I suspect the “M” is actually an “H” and that the round is by Hirtenberg in Austria.

Cheers,

Lew,

After a “thorough” cleaning of the base the “H” was revealed. Thank you for your assistance.

Pat,

It was likely made for export, probably to South America. Similar headstamps usually occur in Spanish label boxes.

Cheers,
Lew
