If your tweed champ is stamped HH, it was made in 1958/August.

A – 1951 A – January B – 1952 B – February C – 1953 C – March D – 1954 D – April E – 1955 E – May F – 1956 F – June G – 1957 G – July H – 1958 H – August I – 1959 I – September J – 1960 J – October K – 1961 K – November L – 1962 L – December M – 1963 N – 1964 O – 1965 P – 1966 Q – 1967 Another way to get a close estimate of when your amp was made is to read the codes on the transformers.

The tube chart date code works like this: the first letter indicates the year and the second letter indicates the month.
