Default S&W headstamp brass

Does anyone have some 38 special brass with the S&W headstamp from when they were marketing their own ammo? PM me if you have 15 pieces that you would part with, need them to put in a presentation case.

All my S&W brass is 44 Mag. Let me know if I can be of service.

If you're talking empty brass I might but I'd have to look for it and it would be a PITA. It's buried in a closet and mixed in with other old brass. I only have one box of loaded S&W Nyclad wadcutters and I kinda want to keep it.

Thanks to 2 forum members I received more than enough brass to go with my birth year (1948) M&P.

Nice Chief Dave, Did you make the box? if so how did you do the vertical cloth on the cut out of the pistol, it looks like something Huey would do. Very nice.

Can't take credit for the box. Found on Ebay and was for a 4" K-22.

Thanks Dave, I like making boxes for my revolvers but that detail of your box with the cloth has been a challenge for me.

I've still got a box of unfired S&W branded ammunition around somewhere.

I found a complete blue and white box of S&W ammo in 32 S&W (NOT Long!) at OGCA a few years ago... it looks like it would be a real challenge to collect all the different calibers.
