My *guess* btw as to the MPxxxx markings with the MSl△xyyzz style datecodes (with 5 digits; the old ones use 4 digit YYWW year + week datecodes) is: MS - ? l = location of manufacture? x = last digit of year (first digits are 198) yy = week during year zz = day during week (first digit is always 0)
