The numbers always report year (2 numbers) month
(2 numbers) and serial number of the instrument in the year period.
Manne started building instruments in 1987...
since 1995 the numeration is given in this way...
the first couple of numbers = Year
the second pair = Month
the remaining 3 numbers = progressive serial number in the year production..
