Default new freebie score on weber

I was at a customers house today and she had this sitting in the basement covered in dust. I told her if she ever wanted to get rid of it to let me know and she said to take it with.
I dont know how old it is but it has the old base and just the letter "A" on the top vent.

"A" dates it to 1979 I believe.

We should make the date code part of this thread a Sticky for everyone's use.

Any mods listening?

not to hijack, but did weber ever make grills for kenmore? My yard sale find looks like a weber but has kenmore on the wood handle and K on the top vent, but it doesen't say weber on it anywhere that I can see
