Rutland Gasket Adhesive Question

The question I have is on the manufacture date of the Rutland adhesive. We are expecting some good weather the next few days and I figured since I had the time I would change the gasket on my egg since the winter is coming and it does have a small leak. When I went to purchase the adhesive the numbers do not match the configuration that is posted on the Naked Whiz's website. The number stamped on the tube is 110354. This tube is purchased separately from the 5/8 gasket material. They also have a package which sells the gasket and adhesive and the number on that tube is 207287. Based on the information below none of this matches:
To assure you have good product check the small code embedded in the crimped end of the adhesive tube. It is visible even in the bubble wrap. The first two digits are the day of the month of production. The third is a letter whereby B = 2003, C = 2004 and D = 2005 etc. The next two numbers represent the month and the last letter is the batch that particular day. Now add 18 months to that date of production and you will know if the product is still fresh.

Does anyone know what the new code is and if these are good tubes to use.

Ron Pratt if you read this please send me your e-mail address as the one I had no longer works.
