Determine Battery Manufacture Date Motorcraft Sliver Series

I recently bought a 2000 Ford Ranger (Supercab, XLT, 4wd, 3.0) with 72,500 miles on it. It has a Motorcraft Silver Series battery in it and I'm trying to determine when it was manufactured. The round white/green sticker on it's side says H-1 which would lead me to believe it was manufactured August 2001. The battery is in great shape, so I really doubt it is 10 years old. Am I reading the code wrong?

The top of the battery should have a sticker with the date printed on it

The manufacture date is usually etched on the case
