Nikon SP, 1957 how many made?

Just been doing some reading around here and there,

And was curious, how many SP's rolled out of the factory in 1957?

From what I gather a total of 20k+ where made over the next decade?

Do we have a thread here already about this? Sorry if we do!

Maybe someone can help date my body, #6202312

Really curious to get an idea of how old my particular camera is, which is in great working order btw!

Feel free to shut me up if this is secret knowledge

So the mystery still remains as to a relative timeline of production inside these brackets?

How possible is it my camera #2312 left the factory in Feb/March of 58' ?

i guess that would require a more detailed database that may not even exist.

Maybe there is a way to guess... If there existed any suggestion to how how any bodies could be completed in an average day/week/month...

Curious to say the least!
