Deluxe reverb dating
Also, a picture would help a lot to determine the exact model and the condition, which impacts the value. Hey gang, I'm not tracking this very closely, and (to be quite honest) I'm not much of an expert on old amplifiers.
But it appears we are talking all over each other, without any resolution.
They are not of a concern with dating as only the 2 letter date codes on whichever chart or sticker and the transformer number comes into play for that....
There are other ways but the above is a more accurate method.
Neither the date nor the value can be determined from the serial number.
Fender’s amps, unlike their guitars, are not tracked by the serial number.

They actually held clipboards and stopwatches to measure how long it took for me to attach various parts.I think in the corners of the boxes were older pots remaining from earlier dates... Like I said, there were 5 or 6 of us at the benches every day.
