ID:	863856 I recently found these old shotgun shell head stamps along the creek near my house. Does anyone know roughly what year they may have been produced. Two of them are Union Metallic Cartridge (U.M.C. Co) New Club 12 gauge. One is a Western XPERT 12 gauge and a Winchester Repeater 12 guage. The 16 guage is a Winchester Super Speed. Thanks for any info on them .

    Quick rundown:

    UMC New Club Star varieties - Approx. 1902-1910 +/- a couple of years on the front end of the date. You have both a Type I (black one) and a Type II (red one) variety there.

    Winchester Super Speed - 1937 to the early 1960's.

    Winchester Repeater - 1904-1927

    Western Xpert - 1927/32 to the early 1960's

    I need to clarify that the color of the shotshell head is not what determines the star type. It is the star itself.
