Dating the pots in my Fender Jazz

    How can I tell how old the pots are in my Fender Jazz Bass that I just got? It appears that I should be able to decipher a date from them. It is a 70's model 4 bolt sunburst w/ pearl block inlays. I am trying to determine the instruments age and there are no legible markings on the neck or body. Of course I am assuming the pots are original which they may not be since the bridge and P/U's are not. I found a headstock reference page that was talked about here on the sight so thay may shed some light on things too.
