I received a book today which had a red and white meter strip on it, which was dated for the right day in February (the day it was marked mail), but 2007, rather than 2008.  The book arrived ok, but I'm just wondering if this is a post office issue, or something to even be concerned about?  I did politely notify the sender, in case she wanted to talk to her local post office about it.

Any input from you under-appreciated but much-loved postal employees?

The mailer probably used a meter machine at his/her place of work and didn't realize the date was wrong.
