The 2 LC pieces of brass are both LC 09. Other than the HS, is there anything different about those pieces of brass? No reason to separate them? 90% or so of the LC I have is the with the closer letter spacing & NATO cross.

The other two I'm just wondering what they are. No manufacturer mark - just the NATO cross & 04

Hard to say positively who made the unmarked NATO cases.

Just size, trim, and weigh them on your powder scale.

If they weigh the same, they should be about the same case capacity, unless the extractor groove is cut much differently.

LC brass is pretty much all the same, the difference is which machine struck the bunter (The part that pierces the primer flash hole and imprints the headstamp data).

The nonmarked stuff has the NATO cross in a circle symbol, so it should conform to all applicable standards for certification which means it won't be too far off any other NATO marked brass. Still if you are planning a really hot load or extreme precision I would not consider it to be 100% the same as another headstamp.
