Anyway it comes very close to what I was told : the first owner had it for abeut 3 years, and the man I bougth it from owned for abeut a year. I think the first owner live in USA. It has the smell of Cinomen inside. Last year I went to the east coast (NY Nazareth Washington) and learned  that you like this sense. In Denmark, where I live its more flower senses like lavender we prefer in lockers and cabinets

Jan's correct, almost. There are 7 digits in the SN, not 6, so that is a later model SN, actually 2007, I think.

According to this site, it's a 1917 vintage, if I am reading it correctly.

I just traded my 00015 and a little money for a D 18 in mint condition
I would like to know how old it is,- the serial number is D18 - 1259051
The soundboard has a very beatifull "tan" compared to my other guitars, so maybe it`s a litte older than I was told ?
Does anyboby know
