I show my collection of Kynoch Limited, Birmingham boxes in an effort to try and date or translate the date stampings.
30army showed a list of months and years that did not fit the later Kynoch Factories of Nobel Industries boxes .However the Kynoch Limited dates differ and may fit?
I have only 6 boxes that have clear date stamps:
16 H F on Morris Long. (16 June unknown year?)
3 1 G on 450/400 3". (3 unknown month and year?)
12 K H on .577 3". (12 Jan 1916 or 1922?)
9 K O on .25/35 Win. (9 Jan 1916 or 1922?)
6 R O on .500 3 1/4". (6 Sept 1916 or 1922?)
17 N O on .470 . (17 March 1916 or 1922?)
All other stamps are missing , too faint or unmarked tins (I hate tins that rust labels).
Letters F & G are not mentioned for years. Letter I not mentioned for a month.
Also there were two C’s for months which must be an error.
Kynoch Limited does not fit the 1931,32,33 or 1940 dates from the later listing.
Also where did this 1911 to 1925 month and year list come from? Interesting.
Please feel free to comment on these boxes and dates. I am no expert but do have over 700 boxes as a reference collection of 40 years. Hard to find now.
