ACCORDING TO CURTIS STEINHAUER’S SITE, www.cartridge-corner.com, THE MADE IN USA HEADMARKING STARTED CIRCA 1927. THE SHELL YOU HAVE DEPICTED LOOKS LIKE SHELLS I SAW IN GUNSMITHING SHOPS IN THE MID 1950’s. IS THE HEAD OF THE SHELL STEEL OR TINNED BRASS? IF ITS STEEL IT WOULD LIKELY DATE TO CIRCA 1942-43, BUT COULD HAVE BEEN MANUFACTURED SOME YEARS AFTER THAT DATE. ONE OF YOU SHOTSHELL COLLECTORS FEEL FREE TO CORRECT ANY OF THE INFORMATION I’VE GIVEN IF ITS NOT CORRECT.

The head is made of magnetic steel.
