HPA 3 or 5 years?

I am looking at buying a HPA tank from a guy that is from 04-03. Therefore, it is passed it's 3 year hydro date if it is 3 year. So I looked at our handing sticky to check out DOT info found this:

"For exemption code E-10915, if the last test date was before May 11, 2001 then your bottle is still on the 3-year cycle and must be tested every 3 years. If it shows a test date after May 11, 2001 then your bottle is now on a 5-year test schedule."

This tank is a Luxer tank with a E-10915-4500 code on it. If I am reading this exemption correct, the tank is a 5 year tank since it was created in April of 2003.

Someone correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks.

I read it as a 5 yr tank.
Here's a list that might clarify hydro dates for different manufacturers.

Looks like I was right. Also looks like I have a new tank.

Thanks!
