It is hard to be 100% sure but according to Jorion & Regeinstreif, they did produce a “CNIC 7,62x39” hs with the “CNIC” at 6 o’clock.

This box and the ammunition that will be found in it pre-dates the “7.62x39 CNIC” headstamp by many years. The headstamps in this style of box are from factory “71” with dates in the mid-1980s. Chocolate brown lacquered steel cases with steel cored projectiles. This is one of the first types of commercial Chinese 7.62x39mm boxes (and ammuniton) to arrive in the US.
