The model identifier ink stamp is clearly visible, but the scond smaller production date stamp is not so clear. I will check it again, but it does appear to read F-71, which would indicate that it was made in one of the 1971 production runs.....the year before the run run of this model production ceased in 1972.

YouTube is well blessed with a good number of clips of Mance Lipscomb playing his Sovereign H1203....only thing to note is that strangely it wore an H162/H165 scratchplate, or possibly no scratchplate at all at times.
