Looking for WW2 Headstamped .50 Cal Cases

As the title states, I am looking to start a collection of WW2 50 caliber brass. At this time I am looking for all headstamps and will update this thread with what I pick up as I go along. I am looking for original cases in good condition (no cracks, holes, other similar damage) that have not been cleaned and retain their original patina. Would prefer fired cases as to avoid having to pay hefty hazmat fees to ship 1 round of ammunition. Please let me know what you have that I can take off of your hands!

Thank you!!

Just FYI... ammo is ORM-D (Other Regulated Materials, category D) and doesn't require HazMat. It does require an ORM-D sticker on the package, however. I don't think ORM-D covers incendiary or other special rounds, though.

Still is expensive to ship live rounds though as opposed to spent cases.
