    to me it looks to be a 1950's shell that's been reissued so it could have easily been used during the 1960's.

    no mate its not a Euro clone, Euro clones don't have the heat stamp that US made M-1's have. from the shape i doesn't look like a low dome that's why im guessing 1950's probably been repainted many times through its life.

    I found the stamp on a website not in a book.there is no info regarding these stamps,were just a handful picked?or only ones that went through a certain criteria or just random checks by the quarter masters office,well here's the stamp enjoy,regards Dave.

    it looks exactly like those except it says 1955 .is it a USMC shell from the logo or just a random stamp ? and is that the date it was inspected "1955" ? cheers ?
