Hello All,

Can someone help me with Juche dating? I have a work of art inscribed 
Juche 72, i.e. 1983.  How do I explain this date? Was the Juche calendar 
in use before it was officially adopted in 1997? Or was my work made or 
restored after 1997 and simply furnished with an earlier date?

Thank you.
