Note that in CVS a branch is initially just a magic tag and no more.

Actual branches in files are not created until there's a delta to put on

As other's have noted there's no way to know when it was created unless
you have CVSROOT/history enabled and you've created it using the 'cvs
rtag' command

Note that always using 'cvs rtag' is a very good idea to get in the
habit of since it will likely mean you've preceded it with the creation
of a normal (non-branch) branch-point tag, probably from within a
working directory.  You'll want thea branch point tag later and it's
always better to create it first and then create the magic branch tag
itself using the branch-point tag as an anchor.
