Kynoch box codes


#1

I am trying to determine the age/manufacture date of the following 3 Kynoch 6.35 Browning boxes.

  1. Multi color box - Date code 19 G Y
    Is this 19 Nov 1912 or 1918?
    NHS
  2. Yellow box- Date code EO E X
    Is this 29 Feb 1928 (leap year)?
    Headstamp KYNOCH 6’35
  3. Tan box
    Only code munber on back of box is 13. A note came with box saying it was a Dec 1930 box. Previous owner had another very similar with 17 S E code.
    One cartridge in box with pulled bullet.
    Headstamp Kynoch 6’35 Bullet has a raised K on base.
    Any help is appreciated in setting date of manufacture for these boxes.
    Thanks-

The third box makes reference to the London address and says Imperial Chemical Industries as well which makes it transitional. So 1930 looks good, certainly post 1926 but not by more than a few years.
