Default Who made these cartridges? Pics included

A co worker was cleaning out a deceased relative’s house and found a stash of old ammo which he gave to me. I finally got around to sorting it and came across a few interesting headstamps.

Who made these??

Some of the .32-20 was so old it was marked “.32WCF”.

Also, there was one .32-20 in a straight case.

Picture 2 seems to read 3_ S&W S P before it blurs out. I expect that's not 32-20. Unless it's repurposed brass.

The first one is Dominion Cartridge (Canada). I can't say what the origins of the others are. .32 CFW is .32 Center (or Central) Fire Winchester, another name for the .32-20. So the caliber is stamped twice. The middle one is 38 S&W SPL. Without a maker stamp on two of them (UMC=Union Metallic Cartridge, WRA = Winchester, P. C. Co. = Peters, etc.) only an advanced collector could tell you who might have made them. You might want to post your question on the International Ammunition Association (IAA) forum. That would be the best way to get an answer.
