    Anywhere is everywhere and nowhere is nothing.
    So...what to look for in the serial number of my Double Deluxe that would reveal its date of manufacture?

    Dating a Victoria Amplifier...
    First step, take her out and treat her like a lady.
    Second step, tell her she's the one you're dreaming of.
    Third step, take her in your arms and never let her go.

    Sorry, I have nothing helpful to offer.

    Do the easy thing - email the company and wait for an answer.

    I got a rapid reply from Mark Baier himself, when I sent the S/N of my 35210 to them, asking the date of mfg.

    I once asked Mark what the hell his codes meant, he told me that it was simple, and once I knew......i was convinced he just likes to have a little fun at the owners expense. But I promised not to give up his secret. Great amps.

    Exactly my thought every time I see a 'Dating...' thread.
    I'll e-mail Victoria and see what they can tell me.
    Thanks!

    From the two times I have met him, I would say you are correct.

    I love mine. If you're not familiar with that (Tweed Super) circuit, you'll be surprised at how clean they are compared to 5E3s. I flip back & forth between the 35210 and a SF Vibrolux Reverb as my main amps.
