Best Answer

From July 1986 until 2001, Zippo® stamped a letter (A-L) and a Roman numeral (II-XVI) to represent a batch code for the month and year the lighter was made. The letters were A for January, B for February, etc. The Roman numeral denoted the year, where 1986 was denoted with II (2). A Zippo® made in 1990 would therefore be stamped with VI.
