How to tell the age of Car Battery from Codes

Post by tonyredz » Fri Apr 12, 2019 4:25 pm

Hello,
I recently bought a second-hand car battery from a breaker's yard. It works fine, but I am curious to know how old it is. There are three codes stamped on the battery in three separate places :-

130532
667021937
1092

None of these codes seem to relate to the info on any of the websites and youtube videos I have looked at so far, there are no letters within the code to denote the age. The battery is made by MONBAT (seems to be a Bulgarian manufacturer).
Does anyone know how old this battery is from the codes above?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
