When assigning accession numbers to an old collection where the donation date was not clear, but old inventories (1968, 1983) showed the items in the collection, I assigned a temporary accession number of 19xx.etc, for the first number. As I find more precise information on those items I can then change that first number to reflect the year the items were received.
