Can someone out there de-code this - I assume this is a date code stamp on a Firestone Super Sport.

Sorry for the size of the pic, ever since Windows 10 installed itself, I have no luck trying to edit photos.

More info on the tire would be helpful.  Looks like a bias ply Firestone.   DOT numbers began use in 1969.  So could have been made in 69?

C'mon Dan , out with the answer!

I remember you posted something about redlines quite a while back, specifically the differences between repro tires and original. I'd say theses are reproduction...
