Epiphone Serial Number

Is anyone able to date my Epiphone Sheraton? The serial number is 880509595 and it's located on a stick-on strip on the back of the headstock.

The front of the headstock has "Epiphone by Gibson" at the top and the Epiphone logo at the bottom. Cheers.

Hello people that know,
I fear for the authenticity/ origin of my epiphone
LP special 2 (vin.sunburst) purchased only a year ago
(from a river specialist in south America!)there's only
11 numbers, no prefix,& factory origin that doesn't
list anywhere: 14101312605, this will determine whether I keep it or throw it in the swamp.
Thank you. Roman. (UK)

epipiphone 335 serial number manufacturer and year

I have an Epiphone/Gibson 335 dot cherry red guitar with the serial number 103072135 and can not for the life of me figure out what year and where it was made using the codes I find on the internet. Can anyone help me? Someone said it was made in Japan before they were made in Korea and later China.. I have no earthly idea and am obviously not savy enough figure it out from any of the information that I've been able to find on the internet.. Any help will be appreciated.. Thanks, Howard
