The spoke seats are a little tarnished, it looks, but everything is operational. Spokes themselves are just fine.
I agree it does seem like an odd place but yes IIRC the date is stamped on the back side, I guess since the front is serrated for better bite.
I also agree you need to try tubulars. you can always go the Yellow Jersey route and get their "pair and spare" for $50 that gives you 3 tires.
while these are some nice old wheels selling the whole may be problemmatic simply because it can be expensive to ship whole wheels.
Next time I pass through Wichita I'll be happy to show you how to glue them on
