old speaker identity
I've got this speaker:  
 
Black, 12", square back side / square magnet, and with this writen in a corner on green simbols:  
 
12551  
67-8015  
 
Because of it being "reversed" polarity, and what the dealer told me, it is suposed to be an alnico Jensen speaker, 67 meaning the year, with an impedance of 8 ohms.  
 
What else or just what could I know from these speakers?  
 
This type / model of speaker doesn't appear in Weber / Jensen (history link) site.  
 
Thanks,

Uh, that's an Eminence manufactured in the 15th week of 1980. Eminence is 67, jensen is 220, I think.

Whoa... I'd sure like to know who that dealer is. He's not even close and is obviously trying to pull one on you.  
 
12551  
Somebody's part number (probably Fender)  
 
67-8015  
Eminence, 15th week of 1980.

all the above answers are true.....the dealer is either ignorant about the codes or a theif either way he loses me as customer....hopefully you too.....of course you could go tell him you're onto his scam and offer him 25 bucks for it.
