Do the Nikon serial numbers reflect number of production?
Jun 9, 2012

Just wondering if the Nikon (and Nikkor) serial numbers are the production numbers.

I know that Seagate (a hard disk manufacturer) uses codes in the serial number that reflect the fiscal year and month a hard drive is manufactured. And part of the number is the production number for that month.

But how about Nikon? Anybody any idea?
