I seem to remember there was a date stamped on the terminals (must check mine!) which would go something like “909”, representing September 2009 in that case. If no-one chips in I’ll check mine if I remember....

Is that January 2017 or Week One 2017? Sorry cant remember.

Only way to tell is if it is > 13 :)
Beginning to suspect John may well be right, and its the month.
