I've seen a Fuji with ink stamp (1982). I read everywhere that all ink stamp is Dyna. What did I miss?

The Grecos have two serial formats.

The Greco/Ibanez serial format is MYYXXXX with M=month letter(A=Jan...L=Dec), YY = year, and XXXX = production number.

The other Greco serial format is YXXXX with Y = year with no decade info, and XXXX = production number. This serial can also be a MYXXXX format which is the same as the YXXXX format but has a month letter as well.

The Greco (YXXXX) serial format first appears around 1979 and no one really knows why.

Yup, sounds resonable. And it still makes my Daion LP, Joodee LP, Greco LP cousins and that i want!

Thanks!
