Are these Magazines Pre-Ban ?

Going thru my INCH magazines, I found 3 with markings.

Any advice or information to identify these and determine if they can be called "pre-ban" is appreciated :

#1) labeled F 69 9600017

#2) labeled D83 9600017

#3) labeled ICR 84A R.F.I. 72

Thanks !

I see people living in the non-free states referring to this, as it affects them.

I think it is for the following, as I was told :

Pre-ban are magazines made before the Sept. 94 signing of the Federal law.


I'm wondering if the markings on these magazines give any indication of when they were manufactured...

Thanks !

All are pre 94 ban but I don't think it matters anymore. NY can't have any no matter how old they are if the new law holds up and the old ban expired a long time ago for the rest of us. #3, the Indian mag is fairly desirable to someone building an Indian FAL. Nice to see you're still around. I bailed out of NH last year and been living the good life in the Tennessee mountains. Supposed to be 70 on Tuesday.
