    indicates that although there is no date on the document itself, internal references or other evidence make the dating probable

    indicates that there is no original date present in the record itself, and there is a lack of sufficient circumstantial evidence, so the date given is the best approximation
    [?] after the date indicates that a date cannot be established with any level of confidence, and a speculative date or month has been assigned
