Most 22 rimfire with a diamond was manufactured by either Western or Winchester. Can you post a photo?

If is .22 short

Winchester-Western East Alton (Illinois)

If is .22lr

Betwen 1910 and 1969: Western cartridge Co., after 1969: Winchester-Western New Haven (Connecticut)

That info I get it from Municion.org that is a useful website about ammo from Spain (the info is in spanish). They not say nothing before 1910... but is probable that was made by Western cartridge Co.
