I recently acquired this T275E2 International Match (Lot FA-3) box.
The E2, NO 34 and VEL 2600 APPROX are all hand written but are very crisp with no ink bleeding. In addition the shade and density of the ink looks almost identical to the rest of the label. I’ve taken a very close look at the box and cannot see any evidence of damage to the label so I think the box is original. This makes me wonder if the hand written text was added to a master label prior to the print run. To prove/disprove this, I need to see additional T275E2 Lot FA-3 boxes. Can anyone help?
It would also be useful to see labels from Lots, FA-1, FA-2 and FA-4. For the last lot, I have only seen single color boxes stamped practice - the use of single color rather than multi-color printing being for cost savings. The meaning of the “practice” stamp has been discussed previously, but has anyone seen a four color box from Lot FA-4?
Information on the cartridges associated with each lot would also be appreciated. Cartridges from two boxes shown above are headstamped (+) FA 56, have flat brass primers with black seals and have an overall length of 2.94 and 2.93"" for lots FA-3 and FA-4 respectively.
