Hi Lillian,
            The different codes are because the number on Rays link is for the product code ,they are made up of U for unlimited and a number incorporating the last two digits of the year of launch.Limited weights would have L in front of the number.The T number on your weight is the number hand engraved before packing to let us be able to track down  when it was made to the exact day.The weights are given a code letter then each unlimited weight is numbered consecutively from 00001 untill that letter is fully numbered.Then we would move on to the next letter and so on.It is quite possible to have the next consecutive number on an entirely different design;it would depend on what was in the finisher/packers tray at the time.

Hi Lilian,
            First of all sorry for spelling your name wrong last time.This is just a quick post to put right a small inaccuracy in my last post,The letter at the start of the number stands for the year that the weight was made and the numbers run untill the end of that year,then start all over again with the next letter in the alphabet.

Thanks Allan
Just noticed that you live in Perth....I guess that helps when it comes to paperweights....
Next what you have told me helps but doesnt actually tell me how to find out what year!!!!...i.e where do you start from to find the year, that number I gave was a T....
Am I so dumb????
