e.g Jan 20, 1589/90. The first year is the old calendar (Julian, established by Julius Caesar in 46 B.C.) and the second year is the new calendar (Gregorian, established by Pope Gregory XIII in 1582). The Julian calendar year started with the month of March, whereas the Gregorian calendar started with January. It was common to show both years for awhile after implementation.

Date of image (photograph, slide, or negative) taken as noted on the image or related documentation. Types of documented dates include single year (1937), a specific date within a year (April 20, 1985), or a range of decades (1950s-1980s). There were many images without any date information. In that case, a bracket around a probable date (e.g. [1930s?]) was used. If there did not seem to be a reasonable guess as to a decade for an image, the acronym "n.d." (meaning "not dated") was used in the Date Field. It is possible to search for a specific month and day along with year, but searches provide more results if you enter only the year, or a range of years in which a specific advertisement was created. As noted above, many images do not have a specific year or year range listed. If you are looking for a specific product/company and a year and there are no returns which match, remove the date from your Advanced Search.

To tell you the current date and time, taking into account your time zone and, if appropriate, daylight savings time.

The date included in the maker's mark in many countries either indicates the date of the legislation under which the piece was marked, or it records the date of the master's entry into a guild.
