These are a series of letters that represent years and months. There are other clues on the backstamp, such as the presence of absence of words such as "Made in USA," "Genuine" and "HLCO." But the above markings are the easiest clues to spot.Ink stamps are always newer (late 90s and on) and imprinted backstamps are sometimes older (some post-1986 Fiesta has imprints). The years begin at 1992 with GG and the months are marked A through L, starting with January.
