Am I correct to assume that the letter refers to the month, followed by day followed by year?

My question is: Is there a good complete reference of all the casting codes? It depended on where and when and what particular part, coding formats varied. On some of the castings the alphabetic letter indicated the year, on others it denoted a month. Most of them avoided using the letters "I" and "O" for obvious reasons but this was not universal either.
If there is a good reference, I would sure like a pointer to it. And don't say "Palmer's", some of it is in there but its hard to dig out and its not complete.
