Tokarev "38 45" headstamp


#1


Does anyone reconize this headstamp? The cartridge is (I think) a 7.62 Tokarev. This is the best photo I can get of it. There is a raised ring around the bottom of the base of the rim, raised 45 at 6:00 and I can’t make out the two letters or numbers at 12:00. Thanks for any help.

It’s 100% USSR from 1945, however I’m not 100% sure of which factory. The “3” looks like it’s centered, but the blob to it’s right could be an “8”. If “3”, it’s Ulyanovk, if “38”, it’s from Yurysan.

I think, that it is the USSR, the city of Jurjuzan (38 45).
