Not uncommon for dates to be off by a year. Whether forward or back a year.
Is the barrel dated under the stock? I do not know when Winchester stopped this practice on Model 70s.

All of my Model 70's are earlier and all are marked under the barrel with the caliber (abbreviated) and the two digit date.
The exception is a 1959 - receiver by date - .264 Magnum that does not have any date markings on the stainless barrel.
