The cases you show appear to have manufactured at the Tel Aviv plant of Israeli Military Industries ( the Hebrew characters shown in the headstamp stand for "MIT").
The cases are dated in the 1950's with the month of manufacture given either in roman or western numerals ( e.g. VII 55 or 7-55). The meaning of the "SS" character I think could be a reference to a "heavy ball" bullet. Alas the "Star" symbol eludes me.
No problem Richard, Glad I could help.... although I must admit I did have to look out some of my reference books on this one!
I said earlier that the"Star" logo eluded me...It has just occured to me that the six point star could only be the national symbol of Israel!
The letters are actually M.Y.T.(Mifal l'Yitzur Tachmoshet), which stands for Ammunition Production Factory. The one dated '52 is a bit different. It has M.Y.N.(Mifal l'Yitzur Neshek), for Weapons Production Factory.
