Thanks Richard. For sure it is past 1953 looking at the side label.

So depending on when they replaced the "control certificate of 1953" with the "stars of excellence Brussels 1954" 

Guess it must be somewhere late 50-ties

 

Interesting..........

I’m sure the “9” embossed on the right is for the year, the “7” on the left is for the manufacturer and the number in the middle when you can read it is the mold number - if i learned this correctly from Lutz

I agree. If it was 1969, it would have the "6" in front of the 9.
