B-29 Vehicle Build Month
One-character code from the following table. Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul
1967 V L R K Z S P W N Y T X
1968 8 9 O N D 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
1969 8 9 O N D 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
late 1969 8 9 O N
These codes were impregnated by the dealer ?
Nope. Everything that was die-imprinted on the P-O-P was done at the plant, when the plate was created in the Addressograph machine on the Final Line. All the dealer added was the GM-branded Dymo tape with the purchaser's name and address.
JohnZ... I believe the 'date of sale' was also included by the Dealer on the DYMO tape with the purchaser, as that sale date specified the initiation of the warranty period. If I'm wrong please correct me... I'm going from memory of one I have from 1969.

Thanks John, after reading (and decoding) thought I was correct on the dates, and which ones should match...you verified. The above is just mine, and a 68, curious if others vary ?
