Does anyone know how to read the code on the bottom of a Bicycle box? Next to the UPC code, there is a code that is a few numbers and letters. Curious if I can find out how old a deck is.

Altho if the deck is sealed then this method is useless.

If sealed, you can also date by the tax stamp (if there's one on the box). Kristin Pattison (preeminent tax stamp expert) wrote a couple of articles about dating decks that Dan And Dave posted on their site. These articles are worth your time, if you have interest in this sort of thing.

You can check them out here:

Hope that helps. Enjoy!

This info is great guys thanks, I think most should be 1992 on unless you have a rare deck. I wonder if you do how much will it be worth? I need to check lots of the decks I have some are sealed thou,The open ones should be interesting.
