Triplex dating code

One dot above T, R, E, or X gives the quarter of the year the glass was manufactured: T = Jan, Feb, March, R = April, May, June, E = July Aug, Sept, X = Oct, Nov, Dec. Nine letters make the word TOUGHENED, one dot below a letter gives the year of the decade: T = 1 O = 2 U = 3 and so on. Say your car is a 1950's MG, then TRIPLEX TOUGHENED, with one dot over the 'R' in Triplex, and the other under the last 'E' in Toughened, indicates 'April/May/June 1958' Below are some date code pictures.
