I am curious to know if anyone has information correlating the lot numbers of Lake City M2 ball manufacture with year of production. I have acquired a spam can of LC M2 ball with a lot number of 39416 (192 rounds in bandoliers).
I am curious as to the date of manufacture. I have cans of LC 1966 in 20 round boxes that have a lot number in the 42000 range. I assume the lower lot number on the spam can indicates an earlier production date - but how much earlier I don't know. Any help would be much appreciated.
Thank you for any information.
