Kyle:
    This past weekend I digitized a handful of cassettes and wondered if
there was an easy way to establish a "not earlier than" date for a
cassette/packaging by its physical appearance. It would be a pretty coarse
measure since cassette types tended to stay on the market for a period of
years and could be used or reused decades later but setting up a reference
database still sounds like a useful exercise. But why limit it to just
cassettes? There are thousands of variations of reel to reel tape floating
around as well. Sounds like an ARSC project.

Is there a trusted source for dating audio cassettes that is commonly used?
I'm a novice going through my own collection of live and rehearsal tapes.
I'd like to get a general sense of the age of the commercially available
blank cassettes (most are Maxell and TDK tapes). Listening through the audio
will likely help me pinpoint things further. Thanks for any advice in
advance.

Best,
Kyle Barnett
