Hello everyone! I have a weird question. I recently purchased a lot of Fram Ultra 9688 filter from flebay. They have circular yellow stickers on them. Anyone knows what this signifies? All the boxes are sealed, but I did find grey hair in center of one. I'm observant of details, OCD. thanks..

That gray hair is Ehrmantraut sending an SOS signal from the Fram labor facility where he assembles filters.

Hair is DNA (trace evidence). That can be entered into CODIS. LOL! Just curious about the stickers, that's all.

My best guess is that the yellow stickers were slapped on by whatever entity was clearing its warehouse of slow moving part numbers and selling them as a job lot to whatever salvage buyer/seller was paying for them.
Probably done to identify those that were supposed to get packed up and shipped.
