The serial number starts '1193***'


Easy it's these Americans and their confusion about dates
(apparently today is 011701).

So it was made the eleventh day or the ninety third month......

oh bugger thats not right....

Human error - they were hand stamped - I bet it was made in 01 93 - some bloke in the GT Tech shop picked up the wrong stamp and hammered a very oddly shaped '0' into your frame.

Silly thing is if its anything like mine the serial number is well on the p1ss so he should have realised his mistake and corrected it with a 0 to the left hand side no-one would have noticed.
