CN - country (sometimes indicates factory) of manufacture.
2 - years since most recent decade, so 2010 plus 2 equals 2012
12 - week of manufacture. there is some debate regarding how close this is to reality
34567 - individual unit no.

Actually, it is CNA229xxxx, where:

CNA is a Chinese factory code that can also be 4CY

2 stands for 2012

29 stands for 29th week, which is late July

xxxx is the four digit alphanumeric sequence number

The Mike to whom I was referring was Mike Morrow, and he stated his began with CN, so I just went with that rather than worrying about the CNA, 4CY distinction.

(I would refer to you, Michael, as "Michael", since that is how you present your name. Sorry for any confusion.)

My 50g is CNA618xxxxx, i.e., it seems to have a five digit numeric only sequence. I forgot that they switched over to the 4 character alpha-numeric sequence at some point.

Dave - My mind is going - I can feel it.
