Here's the latest and greatest compilation.
67 has a calendar week code. 16 D 7 would be the 16th week of 67, day shift. 40 6N would be 40th week of 66, night shift.
The format changed in 68 and 69 to have the week counted from the beginning of the *model* year. The extended 69 model year used tanks dated for the 70 model year.
LOS and NOR data is intermixed and shows the same pattern.

Checked my 01A 69 RS/Z survivor today and it's 19 69 which seems to be right in line!

Well A bit smaller than the photo. I would suggest looking at the proportions in the pic of the corner and the size. Are you not able to find yours?

Correct. So I 'm trying to figure if I'm looking for something that is 1/8 tall vs 1/4 tall and if it is the original tank.

Thanks.
