I have three or four “unremarkable” live rounds; 9 mm; 5.56; .50 ball rounds….with typical common US Mil/LE headstamps.
These in question have significant history and providence to them (their story; where they originated; what “event” they were “at”; who carried and/or provided them).
If they fell into pile of like mixed rounds…they are “gone forever”…just another 9 or 5.56…and it would be a very sad day
My question is should I permanently mark them; i, e; engrave/etch them?
We all know “Sharpie” can wear/erase off; stickers will eventually dry out and the fact is their “story” adds the only value to them as they otherwise have no distinguishable collector value.
Looking for ideas and opinions (not April fools)
