I have seen a number of Turkish headstamps with “T.C” or T over C at the top, which basically stands for Turkey like the two on the left below on a number of calibers. I have never seen the “MKE” associate with the “T.C”.
Has anyone seen this headstamp on any caliber cartridge?
Does anyone know the caliber of the cartridge at the far left below?
These are on rimmed rifle cases. I don’t know what the caliber is.
There is also a 7.63mm Mauser headstamp pictured with “F. T(over)C. I,.” at the top and the caliber at the bottom with two stars. Clearly a Geco/RWS load, probably from the 1930s. Has anyone seen this before on any caliber?
I believe that F T(over)C I is a headstamp used on ammunition bought on contract from outsie Turkey. There are quite a few headstamps known:
9mm Para load are also known with a headstamp like that on the left, but “9.P.” at the bottom. I am told this headstamp is also shown on an SFM drawing. There is also a 6.35mm Browning round headstamped “F. T(over)C. I. AEP”
Does anyone know of any other “F. T(over)C. I.” marked headstamps cartridge or variations of the headstamps above?
I would appreciate images of other “F. T(over)C. I” headstamps not illustrate here.
Any help appreciated.
