Wellsville China Date Codes



Some pieces are date coded but most are not. Date codes could be marked with a four-digit number that represents the year so 1951 would be made in 1951. There are some pieces that could be marked with a two-digit code that represents the last two digits of the year so 51 would be made in 1951.


A letter (dash) number code is also used but is has not been deciphered as of yet.
