This may be of interest to others here as well. I got this info from Apple.
The important digits to figure out what your MacPlus was made are the 3rd,
4th, and 5th. In this case "631". The third digit is the last digit of the
year (will be 5 through 9 or 0), in this case 6 is for 1986. The third and
forth are the week of the year (will be 01 through 52), in this case the
31st week of the year. So yours was made the first of July, 1986 (unless
they worked Sunday <g>). The Plus I'm on right now is a "613", so it was
made in the first week of April, 1986.
