It is from 1965, as that is the date of the box. The same blistercard design was used in the USA from 1965 to 1969.

Regarding the fact that this particular pack contains either just a box and no model or the model inside the box, this is something I have not seen before. I have nothing to add to the comments made in the other thread.

The blisterpacks without boxes, i.e. only with models inside were introduced in 1969. I do not think any were made before that year.

The rightmost blisterpack is a bit of an anachronism as it cannot have been issued earlier than late 1969 (more likely 1970) but it contains an E type box from 1968 - presumably leftover stock used up.

On the other hand, the leftmost blisterpack is the opposite case of a later box (F type) in an earlier blisterpack.

This goes to show that in 1969/70 a lot of overlap of packaging types occurred at the factory during the Superfast transition.

Yes, that's the blister card I was thinking about as mentioned at the end of my last post. Good to know I'm not the only one who's never seen that card.

Here's another one that you would think would be on the newer blister card than the one which it's on.
