Tobacco dating codes who is adam kaufman dating
This was being discussed in the Trading Post so I thought I'd post this over here to keep from getting too far off topic over there. I think the date code for blends distributed by Lane Limited is the long number on the back label.I'm thinking about creating some kind of reference library forum for information such as this. If you interpret the first six digits of this number as year/day/month, it seems to make sense based on some older Dunhill tins I have and the dates I actually bought them (which I write on each tin).
they end in A5 and the set of numbers after the v are 281 divided by three that is 9.36 and this is the 4th of dec, 2013 so I dont know if I should ask for ciggs with a number of no older than 300.Unfortunately, Samuel Gawith and Gawith Hoggarth don't honor us with a date of any kind.Don't really need it with these though, If you get one of their tins you can be pretty sure it just came from the factory. If anyone knows about the date codes on any other manufacturer's products, please don't hesitate to post it.9 equals the year of production I hate stale cigarettes and stores which sell them so I hope this helps someone.Remember to check while in the store as most retailers will not swap cigarettes or give refunds once you leave the store. Phillip Morris claims a 14 month shelf life of cigarettes which I would have agreed with a few years ago.
Cletus is correct about the Mc Clelland date code - first two digits is product number, second two are batch number, third two are year. What I don't know is whether this is the actual tinning date or some other date that means something only to Lane.
