It gave away Arista Premium and Legacy Pro very easily. I'm not interested in the name. I'm interested in the font characteristics. They don't usually go out of their way to obscure this.

Empire Made would mean any part of the Empire outside of the British Isles. From Australia to Kenya to India to Canada etcetera, depending on the date of the camera and the different national independence dates and trade agreements and so on.

Of course, AGFA film packing machinery was sold by AFGA to Harmon/Ilford and after AGFA photo closed down Maco got one set, and their was possibly another one in the wild. Both original Agfa film and Ilford film use similar typography. In fact I believe the PREVIOUS generation of both also had matching typefaces as Agfa supplied Ilfords PREVIOUS packing line.

The Edge printing, spools and end caps of the finished product would look quite similar to Ilford's own products, but of course the deal would have to guarantee that it was clear the product was not from Moberly. Maco no doubt would be even more willing to make such a deal. And I suspect that in China there are folks who would even be happy to build machinery to produce you order. (just look at the Lomography 110 film for example)
