Bob, The 2-15 on the label is the date (Feb 1915) this label was finalized and released for printing. from my experience this “print date” is only a few months, perhaps less from the date loaded cartridges were produced, though that probably wasn’t always the case.

Congrats on the 25 round box. I have been looking for a similar 25 round “export” box in 9mm Luger for some decades with no luck at all!

Cheers,
Lew

PS: Can you show the labels on the two sides of the box? They may have a punch code.

i will take pictures of side labels next week when i am home and post them
