This url lists two different places locations for the manufactor. One is Nepal and the other is Hungary. In the meantime I am puting them in a to be trashed can. Good looking once fried brass.

Also i am confused as to what or which is the Starline head stamp. I have *__* and a *1* . Any ideas what is the proper Starline stamp?

Thanks

*____* I believe. It's star (*) and then a line (___).

Your MFS is 99.9999999999% Hungary. If you had a Nepalese MFS, you would possess one of the rarest collector 9mms there are.
*______* is Starline, *I* is Independence Brand.

gather all you can and save it. you never know when it will be handy for a barter or to supply yourself when you get a new firearm caliber.

Plastic storage containers (about the size of a shoe box) are inexpensive and work great. So do all these new plastic coffee cans by the way.
