10-22-38 Astoria ?
you have to decode the message and the clue and tell us how you arrived at it. no part points, remember?
code was Twenty-Twenty or T-20
T is the twentieth letter of the alphabet...so each number corresponds to the respective letter and vice versa
J-V-CH 11920151891 equates to
10(J)-22(V)-3(C)8(H) A(1)S(19)T(20)O(15)R(18)I(9)A(1)
Oct22nd, 1938 The date of the first ever photocopy in Astoria, N.Y (thanks to google, of course!)
