Can anyone identify the headstamp associated with this Dominion box?

Thanks,

Just got confirmation that a similar box was dated 1954.

Lew, how does this process of dating work? By use of catalogues, personal knowledge or else?

There are codes on the back or inside the boxes. The Dominion and Kynoch code lists have appeared in the IAA Journal. The trouble is that the letter codes repeat over time so you also need to know the box style in use at various times.

Cheers,

Lew

That form of C-I-L was registered 29 March 1950, but use started in 1951 & used to 1956.
During its use the company name was changed to Canadian Industries Limited (1954)
