Did you know that this Tandy 600

to Decode the Radio Shack Product Date Codes.
Many RadioShack products have a small sticker on
the back of the item, or inside the battery compartment to
designate the manufacture date. According to sources, the date
code consists of a number (from 1 to 12), followed by the letter
"A", followed by another number (from 0-9).
number represents the month of manufacture, while the last
number represents the year of manufacture. (The "A" itself means
nothing and just acts as a separator between the month and the
year.) For example, the date code 12A5 would decode to December
1975, December 1985, December 1995, or December 2005.
