Re: What year was my K3 built?

There were no deposits for the K3.  It was rumored to exist but a complete secret until debuting at Visalia in April, 2007.  Later that night an order form was posted on the Elecraft website.   Shipments began the middle of October.

I think the first ones were by deposit to fund the process. 
Mine is 5047.

I have a K3 with the serial number of 73, so I assume it was a very early one.  Is there a way to know if this was in the first batch produced?  Or when it was build?
