How to show age of Cisco Routers?

I have about 50 routers and I need to get the age of each.  I thought I can get the date from the serial number but unfortunately not.  Also attempted router# show rsp chassis command but that is not an available command on any of my routers.  any other way.  Physically going to each router is not an option.

YY is the year of manufacture

WW is the week of manufacture

06 = 2002

Hi,

It seems it is possible to get the age out of the S/N:  https://supportforums.cisco.com/thread/2004382
