      In the first pic they look like 30/06. the ones with the groves are guard ammo,low power. Pic #2 also look like 30/06. the one with the metal band on it is from a belt for an michinegun. Pic#3 loohs like a 45acp,30m1 carbine,30/06 blank and two 50cal bullets. Can't see the head stamps so can't be certin.

      hey blunderbuss2 good to see you again! Bellin68 thanks for the love!

      I will try to help out here but my knowledge in this area is quite embarrassing...

      PHOTO 1: (Stamped on the bottom non grooved) 3- DEN42; 1- DEN43; 1- LC43;
      1- TW43
      (Grooved) 3- FMA 40

      PHOTO 2: 3- LC43; 1- SL42; 2- SL43; 1 (with band)- FA42

      PHOTO 3: thinnest bullet- WCC43; shortest- EC43

      I do not even know if these are the stamps you're looking for blunderbuss2...do these sell as collectibles?
