From October boxes of 100 & 200 will have details printed on the box to identify; the Printer, the Print Run & the Date Packaged, the identification is composed of three lines of three digits.
 
The first line shows that the box was packaged on day 209 (which is July 28).
The second line shows the approximate time & year packaged;
The first number refers to the time of day; 1 = morning; 2 = afternoon; 3 = evening;
The second two numbers refer to the year, (in this case 98, so the year is 1998).
The third line refers to the Printer & Reprint details;
The first figure refers to Printer Codes; they are P for Pemara & S for SNP Cambec;
The second two figures refer to the print run, 1K = first reprint; 2K = second reprint; 3K = third reprint; 4K = fourth reprint; 1R = fifth reprint & so on.

So the above box was packaged in the morning on the 28 July, 1998 & printed by Pemara as a first reprint.
