How to read the new tokai serial numbers?

Post by bardo_01 » Fri Feb 14, 2020 5:49 pm

Hi!

I've recently acquired a new Tokai LS128F and I'm trying to decode the serial number. I know that the two first numbers are the manufacturing year (18), but what about the others? Can I trust the authenticity of my Tokai?? Any help? Thank you so much.

Only the first 2 are significant, the rest are open to conjecture. Post pics and the full ser# for opinions. You can email Tokai Japan, they usually answer pretty quickly.
