Reading cigarette dating codes
There are 365 days in a year and on leap year there are 366 so you just count the days.
Then there is a letter of the alphabet and then a number which the number tells you what year it is the same way as the Pall Mall, Doral, and so on does.
I think though PM products now carry around a 6 month shelf life only.
I believe the FSC paper, or chemicals held within, are causing a dryer tobacco.
An example Phillip Morris bar code is: V159Z94A5 V (or first letter) = the state of manufacture with this one being Virginia 159 (or the next 3 numbers) = the day of the year the cigarettes were made.I guess it is cheaper for them to lose a customer than to refine stale tobacco into recon.I have toured discount and value factories before and I must say most of them produce a premium cigarette taste.
