Many, many years ago I bought a box of mixed surplus 9x19mm cartridges at a gun show. Most of the rounds were British WWII and Israeli with maybe an Egyptian round or two. At the time, I was a new cartridge collector and saved one of each headstamp from the box. Over the years, my interest in 9x19mm faded and all the specimens in the collection were traded off. One
round evaded all attempts to identify. The headstamp (if I recall correctly) was “11067” at 12 o’clock and “S” (not 5) at 6 o’clock. I am a little fuzzy on the “factory code” but am pretty sure that is what it is. The “S” is a definate.
The other unique feature was a shiny, nickel plated primer that was very rounded or dome shaped and uncrimped. I do not recall if there was a colored seal or not. The brass case and copper jacketed ball projectile were very similar to the British cartridges it was with. So, did I give away a rare million dollar cartridge, or it is just a common example from somewhere?
