Hey guys, newbie here............
I came across some unusual ammo and I'm hoping you guys can help ID it and help place a value on it. Thanks!

Looks like it's UMC prduced .43 Spanish. Google turns up a little info, but nothing overly useful.

First of all, welcome here.

I'm posting a link to your photo on another board. There's some real experts there and they may be able to ID it for you.

That's surprising. I'm amazed that no one else came up with that. :D

Remington made the rifles and UMC made the ammo for half or more of the world. There was a time when Paraguay and Uruguay were fighting a war, and both nations had civil rebellions going on at the same time. All four sides were fighting with Remington rifles and UMC ammo. ;)
