This is the number (year) "1887". (A common use for Roman Numerals.) M=1000, D=500, C=100 (three times = 300), L=50, X=10 (three times = 30), V=5, I=1 (two times = 2) 1000+500+300+50+30+5+2 = 1887. *the reason small i's are used, instead of MDCCCLXXXVII is that WikiAnswers restricts the use of consecutive capital letters in questions.
