10-5 came out in early 60s

That serial number points to 1977. That would be near the end of the Model 10-5 production, since the 10-7 replaced it that year.

Those numbers are related to the assembly process and don't have much useful meaning at this point.


On the Model 686-3, BPF79** points to 1993, according to the Standard Catalog 4th Edition.

If you have the original box for the 686, we can tell you exactly when it was produced.
