I have a blank cartridge with the headstamp “WESTERN .32 S&W.” Looking for information as to time frame these were manufactured and if there is any collector value? Thanks.
Globalkooler, have a Jan 1927 Western catalog that lists the 32 S & W blank at that time using black powder. 1949 Western price list lists them with both black and smokless powder. Would guess they were mostly used in starter pistols.
I have a 32 S & W blank that has no primer but the flash hole is drilled clear through and a white card wad is visable. Posted this several months back and have never received an answer. Am guessing it was was some kind of a military booster.
