Good day!

 

let me show you my night table, one ammo box of minigun M134. 

 

I can not determinate the exact production date, i suppose that is manifactured in 1975 because of the '75' stamped at the end of the lot number, but i'm not sure...

 

Does anyone know how to read lot number and exactly give a date to this box?

 

Thanks in advice for all your comment and have a wonderful day!

You are correct on the 1975 idea. One of the marking methods in use before the "modern" style matches the markings on the can.
