Early 7.62 x 54R with 3 position headstamp?


#1

I have an early 7.62 x 54R cartridge with what appears to be a 3 position headstamp, not the expected 4 or 2 position. It is in poor condition, and the characters are difficult to read. The date at about the 2:30 position appears to be either a 95 or 05. The III at the 6 o’clock position is quite legible. The character at the 10:30 position is illegible.
