Is there a way to date an ID to see what year the ship came from? I’ve got one with 15xxx and I’m interested in seeing exactly how old it is. I was wondering if there’s a way for anyone to check. The DOM comes up blank.
As far as I know, there is no list that has been keeping track of when ID's are assigned. Looking at the number though I'd assume its very old if its a 5 digit number starting with a 1 since a fairly new ship I produced has an ID just under 500,000. I'd guess 9-14 years old?
I was just aiming for the closest ID that I knew the production date on to help the OP. I have some with two-digits if this is turning into a dick measuring contest!
“I have a 25XX vehicle, anyone able to shed light in the vehicles department?”
I can't be quite as specific on this, but I have a very close ID (#2485) on a T-16 that I picked up in 2003. I don't think I bought it immediately after it was produced, but that does date it back to that first production run as well, so I'd guess Y3-4. I don't recall exactly how long that production ran before it was taken offline and rewritten.

All ships under #9000 (probably a fair amount higher actually but too lazy to check records) were definitely created with the start of SWC. Those drop ships were originally created for the Empire before any form of production had been implemented.
Edit: With regard to those specific drop ships, if you are curious about their history, back in 2001-2003 or so, the Navy had a squad of drop ships assigned to each fleet, and one squad assigned to the Army. Your drop ships were part of a group that were not assigned to any fleet or unit. They sat at Eriadu collecting dust for several years until they ended up at Coruscant to gather some more dust. I left the Empire after that and couldn't tell you where they ended up next, but my guess is there's a whole lot of dust involved.

I did ship assignments for the Empire for those two years and can provide information on the whereabouts and assignments of all Imperial ships during that time. :) People who win old Imperial ships in raffles and games sometimes like to try to piece together the history of their ships.
