Go to Jewishgen > Get Started > Tools > Calendar Conversion and enter the civil date from the stone. You will see 5679 is correct.

Hello Geners,

 

The civil date does indeed convert into the Hebrew year of 5679.  However, the Hebrew letter for the Hebrew year convert into 5379.

Hope this helps, Malka

The date was read correctly by the first person who responded, namely:  the 8th of Cheshvan, 5679.

The correct date is 8 of Heshvan which corresponds with the Secular date 14 October (Of that year)
12 is a misreading of the word "yom" which means day.
All the best,
