Because starts the subordinate clause. We don't need coordinating conjunction after a comma.
It's either Subordinate clause + , + main clause or Main clause + subordinate clause (without a comma)


(A) 2002, so the potential buyers were unable to determine the year of originally

(B) 2002, and the potential buyers were unable to determine the year of originally

(C) 2002, the potential buyers were unable to determine the year of original
CORRECT
(D) 2002, therefore the potential buyers were unable to determine the year of originally
We don't need conjunctive adverb here.
(E) 2002; therefore, the potential buyers were unable to determine the year of original
Used in this way therefore can only connect two main clauses.
