I'm looking at your photos on my big monitor, and I can see the pack date now. It's partially obscured, but is it "9/56"?
Man, can't believe I didn't notice that! I think you're right
"packed 9/56". Well that's a bit of a downer, still pretty old though! 8)

After plugging the date with description in google, I found this as well... same container with similar date.

Nice find.

Sure looks like it could have been 19th century, anyway.
