    Never heard of it.

    Probably some obscure one-of Wildcat designed by a guy named Spencer.

    The Hollywood Gunshop was an early manufacture of reloading presses, equipment, and dies right after WWII and on into the 1950's.

    They would make custom dies for anything you could dream up.

    Well then, you are in a far better position to figure out what they are then I am!

    Can you do some measuring with a dial caliper before you sell them?

    Size of the hole at the base of the sizing die would give us a clue what caliber case was used to make them.

    The only thing I see even slightly close is the 6.5 Spence (not Spencer) Special which is a 6.5x257 Roberts = 6.5X57 as was commonly chambered in 6.5 Arisakas to let them use available brass.

    "...have these for sale on ebay..." Giving money to the anti-firearm types.
