On the transom, on the backside, top-right corner you will find a plate that goes like this:
Per ISO standards, the plate reads like this:
FR = France, country of origin
XDC = Zodiac/Bombard, their letter code
A1234 = proprietary serial code
A212 = A = Month 2 = Production Year 12 = Model Year (So this one is January 2012, 2012... J112 would be October 2011, 2012)
