    @MichaelClark it doesn't look like a duplicate as the code format is very different. – Drew Noakes Mar 2 '18 at 8:09

    Go to your local Walmart and ask them what the coding means. – Mike Sowsun Mar 2 '18 at 12:53
  • @DrewNoakes As the answers to the other question inform, the formats and what information each field represents can be changed by the user of the machines, such as the Fuji Frontier which was a very popular system. Saying since the the format is not the same it can't be from the same type of machine is like saying the same kind of typewriter could not have produced two different letters because they use different words and paragraph formatting. – Michael C Mar 2 '18 at 14:11
  • @MichaelClark I read the other answer and it was very interesting. I interpret Users have some leeway in assigning what information is printed as meaning only minor changes. This output is clearly significantly different. – Drew Noakes Mar 2 '18 at 18:39

I used to get Kodak Advantix photographs printed out with text like that. Usually it encoded the date/time of printing, some camera settings, customer order number and serial number of the machine used to do tbe printing.
