Style 1

Example: KG44312523

The manufacture date is represented by the numerical digit in the 3rd position of the serial number.

Blue indicates Year and Red is the week of manufacture

Please note! In some cases the year digit in the example above covers decades. So it could be for 2014-2004-1994. You will have to use your best judgement when decoding the age. 

Fortunately most current tags also show the actual manufacture date printed as well.
