F.a. match carton labels

Between 1957 and 1961, Frankford Arsenal manufactured 131 lots of T291/M72 MATCH ammunition. Can you guess how many different paper labels were used during those 5 years?

Hint - it’s more than one. And Rene is not eligible to guess.


since there is no reply, I guess I will have to start working on the “Match Box” article for the IAA journal.


Rene - I was hoping this little quiz might generate some interest in Match cartons and labels. Interest that could be satisfied with a JOURNAL article.:-)

Anyway, the answer is nine. Two basic labels (Ord Label 2588 and Ord Label 35) and seven revisions.
