Well, it tells you what week during the year the device was manufactured (out of 52 weeks).

There are some who think that certain manufacture weeks contained batches of inferior production devices. IDK. I never bothered to look mine up and I've had no problems whatsoever. Mine was delivered on Launch Day.

Week 46.
Black

The outside of the phone is flawless. Unfortunately, while downloading some apps, the screen started to flicker violently and wouldn't stop. I did a reset, and that fixed the flickering, but now there is a thin permanent black like horizontally across the screen that won't go away no matter what I try. :-(

QC not better for me. Scratches/dings on the bottom near the lightning port connection.

Hearing mostly good things about Week 44's in this thread,

Current:
F2, week 40 -- everything works except taking photos and going back to home screen crashes the device. Has happened about 6-7 times now since having it. Tried restoring and setting up as new, same thing. One tiny scratch near the lock button on the chamfer, but I honestly never cared at all.

Replacement on the way:
DN, week 44.

Crossing my fingers and hoping for the best!

I don't understand the website it says

Factory: F2 Please tell us where this machine is manufactured. I'm guessing this is ZHENGZHOU China which is what UPS said

other than that where is the date?

you went here:

?

Production week: 44 (November)

two lines down from serial #

Otherwise, no clue

Maybe you have one that has been eternally manufactured

Anywhere from probably week 40 to week 50. Depends on how long inventory has been held at wherever you are buying it from.

Ordered mine, I believe, at the end of September.

It was manufactured in week 40 (October)

Received it in the mail on October 17.

16 GB, Black

Factory: F1 (China, Zhengzhou - Foxconn)

It was perfect out of the box. Has a couple of very minor chips/scuffs from being in my pocket with my keys for about a week before I got my case.

Works great.
