Here, courtesy of Dr. Ken Howell some years ago, is the key to finding when your Leupold was made. I will assume Leupold stuck with continuing the alphabetic suffix from 2003 on, again skipping "O" since it so closely resembles "0" (see, you couldn't tell which was which, could ya?) and, again, probably using two letters per year.   

PREFIX:
E=1974   J=1978   N=1982   T=1986   X=1990
F=1975   K=1979   P=1983   U=1987   Y=1991
G=1976   L=1980   Q=1984   V=1988   Z=1992
H=1977   M=1981   R=1984   W=1989

SUFFIX:
A=1993   E=1997   J=2001
B=1994   F=1998   K=2002
C=1995   G=1999   L=2003
D=1996   H=2000   M=2003

Found an error in the PREFIX part. There is no "Q", too similar to "O" or "0". It should read:
R=1984
S=1985
Will have to severely discipline my secretary.
