Model 1602 LCD module is a popular alphanumeric display module with 16 character x 2 lines. They are used extensively by hobbyists and professionals alike for microcontroller (MCU) development and DIY and commercial projects. For most hobbyists, they would easily fetch $2-$5 each in single quantities.

There are different interface patterns, 1 x 14 pins and 1 x 16 pins being the most common.
2 x 7 and 2 x 8-pin footprints are less common.

This is a typical 1602 LCD with 16-pin connection. The pin identification is the same for 2x8 pinout.

Looks like model 1602D (16 col 2 rows). They also come with a little backpack board that provides an I2C interface, like this one:

If you can post a clearer picture of the board and the sticker, we can probably help more as far as figuring out the exact brand and model.
thank you so much here are some clearer pictures. I think the date is 2002. Are they too old to be used or sold?

Thank you for such a detailed explanation. The date on the ones that I have I think is 2002 and the connections are at the end rather than the side are they still usable or sellable.

If you were located in my neck of the woods I would take them off your hands.
In October, I will be in Luton and we can meet up if you still have them.
