Default Turtlefoot Headstamp Project

I finally have a working version of the site up and going. It is a little slow on slow Internet service, but it is working. I will be updating the code as time allows. Also, as I get new headstamps, they will be entered into the database.

Here is the Web site address www.turtlefootheadstamps.com

Thanks for making this site, turtlefoot! Saturday I was looking through my trash finds and found another headstamp. This one is a Western No12 Xpert but it had "made in USA" on it so isn't as old as the Winchester I found.

Great to see it back up and running. I can now delete the old site I still had bookmarked in hopes it would return.

Yes, I love cartridge cases too, but I am not good at dating them...yet.

Pretty cool! Do you plan on adding headstamps other detectorists have found or just yours?

I only add them if they are in my collection at this point. Most of the headstamps in my collection came from detectorists literally all over the world, that have donated them to the project. I will NEVER ask anyone to donate them though.
