D - 2009
E - 2010
F - 2011
G - 2012
H - 2013

K - 2015
L - 2016

N - 2018

R - 2021

Thank you. Makes sense....I worked at furniture store a hundred years ago when I was a kid and all the prices were hand marked on a hang-tag. Our cost on a particular item was written as "Don't be lazy", corresponding to 1 through zero, respectively. So if our cost on some item was $195, our cost would be coded as DZB on the tag. This allowed us to negotiate on various items within certain limits. Pretty clever I thought.
