I have recently picked up a Kynoch 9mmP box with a Canadian Dominion overlabel. The basic Kynoch box is a somewhat different style than others in my collection and I’m having trouble dating it. The year code is “M” so it is either 1938 or 1964.
I have a Kynoch 1936 dated box and it is a totally different label style. I have a 1949 Kynoch box (shown below) and a 1963 Kynoch box (not pictured, but very similar to the 1949, except in 115gr blt). The manufacturer information on the back of the Dominion box is quite different from that on the 1949 & 1963 boxes.
Is the Kynoch box under the Dominion Label later than 1963 or earlier than 1949???
I have also attached the label of a much earlier Kynoch 9mm box with a pink covered box under the label like the DWM boxes from between the wars. Unfortunatly, this box lacks a date code. The cartridges are K 22 headstamped (as are the cartridges in a Kynoch box dated 1932).
I am interested in a date range for this box label. Interestingly, I have a Dominion overlabeled box with the same pink ends which is clearly an early Kynoch box (the one I picture below or one similar) and it too contains K 22 headstamped cartridges.
Any help on these dates is much appreciated.
PS: I posted this question on the BOCN http://www.bocn.co.uk/vbforum/small-arms-ammunition-f40.html a few days ago but didn’t get an answer so decided to try the IAA Forum also.
