I think the Credo date is inaccurate. I can't be sure and you'd need to ask Murphy or Laird for confirmation, but here's why;

In Tales Vol. 2 #1 it states the TMNT are 12 in 1981. This means the age timeline is;

1981 - 11/12 or 12/13
1982 - 12/13 or 13/14
1883 - 13/14 or 14/15
1984 - 14/15 or 15/16
1985 - 15/16 or 16/17
1986 - 16/17 or 17/18
1987 - 17/18 or 18/19

Since Murphy was (I believe) writing that age/date based on Laird's official timeline I'd say that the age of 12 in 1981 is correct over the age of 16 in 1987. But like I said that's not been officially confirmed (though I think the age of 11/12 in 1981 best matches up with the flow of events and Shadow's age later in Tales Vol. 2 but I'd have to check when I reach that point in my detailed timeline) and probably won't be unless someone asks Murphy in a letter col or if he posts in this thread to clear it up.
