Default UMC No 10 Star Shotgun Shell

Hello everyone,
I have used turtlefoot's database in the past to research shell finds, however it seems to not be working for me any more. Could anyone tell me an age for this type of shell? Thanks you all so much for sharing your wealth of knowledge

Yes it is truly a shame Turtlefoot's site is down. I hope the man is doing ok.

From this post, guy dated a STAR no 12 to 1880's:

I couldn't find much else on it. Picture here but zero information:

Nice find!
