Based on the serial number, how old is the VEGA I'm selling?

There are a few Vega serial number date charts in which there is a certain amount of guesstimating for the very early numbers.
Jim Bollman's 1978 Pickin' list = 1916.
Mandolin Café 1910 list = between late 1916 and early 1917.
BHO's Banjotrader 2015 list = 1916.
Acoustic Music Org 2015 list = same as Mandolin Café List.
And the Whitetreeaz list: http://web.archive.org/web/20160404140255/http:/www.whitetreeaz.com/vintage/banjomfg.htm
That's all the lists I know.
