Thanks Jim. It was FVV&Co. on the headstamp. After some quick and dirty research, it apears the FVV company supplied spencer ammo to the cavalry from 1865 to 1868. The company B of the 2nd cavalry were stationed at Fort Stamdaugh durring the early 1870's. I sure would like to know the story behind these cases. Where they fired at hostiles or were they used to secure camp meat for the soldiers at the fort? Very cool. i also wish I had the spencer rifel that fired them. I have never had the pleasure of seeing one in person, only dreams! Anyhow, Thanks a bunch.
