    Im looking to find out how old this tire is. Previous owner thought it was the original. If it is the original, I’d like to keep it with the car. Code is US41031.

      No date code there. Date codes started later.

      Pre 2000 is a 3 digit code and post 2000 is 4 digit. It's the last three or 4 of DOT code.

      269 - 26th week of 89 or 99
      2609 - 26th week of 2009.

      Looks like an old, original, tire to me.

          Thanks. That’s what I figured out as well. Car has an app date of 1/6/69 so I guess it was either a warranty tire or changed out at some point.
