Another date code question--9004 A2

  1. I posted this in the date code thread, but I think it got buried...

    I have an epi petit noe with a date code of 9004 A2. From the date code thread I was able to determine that the numbers then letters style of code means that it's from the early 90's, and that A2 means France.

    All of that is consistent with the bag--it has a pocket which as older noe style and it is stamped made in France.

    Can anyone deciper the 9004? Did they used to do yymm so that this would be April of 1990?
  2. Yes the date codes were displayed differently on the older items.
