    jsb exact - orange sticker -38006110 then 0 then 4.52

    air arms -yellow sticke -025 1006 then 4.52 then 03
    air arms -yellow sticker - 074 1303 then 4.51 then 58
    air arms - white sticker -27 6. 10. 2009 then 4.51 then so 84 there might be more but its covered by retailers bar code sticker

    The numbers on JSB produced pellets (sold under Airarms, Cometa and other brands).
    For example on the label on the bottom of the tin:
    First number: 10005805
    Second number: 2
    Third number: 4.50

    The first number:
    - 10 = number of the pressing die
    - 00 = personal number of responsible employee in production
    - 58 =personal number of the employee in Quality Control
    - 05 = year of production.

    Second number: 2 = manufacturing batch
    Third number: 4,50 = head diameter in millimeters

    I for myself ignore the head diameter and just look at the die number
    Hope this helps.
