Any ancient retail queens here?

Does anyone know how to read old department store codes? For example 1K594? What would the B5 at the bottom left corner mean? I would love to decipher some of the old price tags.

Thanks in advance!

Do you know what store it came from? That would help narrow the coding down.

It was a general question. A lot of the stores I have never heard of: Norby Department store;Cain Sloane Co, Nashville; etc. I assumed, perhaps incorrectly that there was a general template that was followed.

The example given is from Norby.

Perhaps you should post in the underwhelming thread.
