    A very nice example. The package is fully marked with the date of manufacture and lot number. There is no question of loading in the sense that you make an empty item and then it has to go away for filling. ROF Chorley who make the explosive CE, mould these in a die, pack them in the tubes and packages which they outsource and put the dates on the packages and tubes, which would have been pre marked with the rest of the information.
    The obscured marking could well be an inspection mark.

    there is enough of the original lettering to be able to see PRIM CE and some other letters under the paint so this box has definatley been remarked
