    Would you show the context? It looks more like from Oct to Dec. – user58955 Apr 1 '14 at 20:13

    The specific date would be 2010年10月12日 or 2010年10月12号 – Ming Apr 2 '14 at 0:26

    It can mean anything since it isn't written in a proper format that people would understand. Unless more context is provided, I am voting to close this as primarily opinion based. – 杨以轩 Apr 2 '14 at 7:33

In that case it would be saying 10th month through 12th month

See @Ming's comment about the specific date format.

There could be a case where the writer is using their own unique format, but that would depend on context


In most cases, it means 9/2010-12/2010, unless in specific text it has some other meanings.
