If your serial # falls in between some listed, you could
estimate how many were built per day, and probably exclude Sundays in most case. That's just my guess.

Also,  keep in mind that one number may be the first built on one day, and another may be the last built on another, or anywhere in between. So untill someone comes up with a more exact science, this should get you in the ball park with the age of your Sho-bud.

If you have anything to add or corrections, please contact me.

Thanks for looking.
