    Help with 7.62 x 25 Tokarev Headstamps

    I bought a bunch of loose surplus ammo.

    I have been trying to figure out these headstamps for a while and not really sure if I'm identifying them correctly, I think they are Polish from the (21) and (343) numbered Ovals. For the Oval (21) I "THINK" the 54 is the Date of manufacture, and not sure what the other number means.

    I used the IAA website and a couple of others. I'm hoping someone might lend me a hand in identifying these:

    54 55 (no oval marking)

    55 with a OVAL with 343 inside

    All these other have an OVAL with the number 21 inside it, they are:
    54 2
    54 5
    54 6
    54 7
    54 8
    54 10
    54 12
    54 14
    54 15
    54 17
    54 18
    54 20
    54 21
    54 25
    54 26
    54 29
    54 33




    Thank you in advance,

    Full marks, as far as you go. The numbers (2-33) in the right column are case lots. I have found up to 12 different case lot numbers in a single 70 round box of Polish 7.62. Great for cartridge collectors!
    I have a guide of all known 7.62x25 cartridges, makers loadings, etc. PM me an email and I'll send the listing to you.
