I've just purchased a vintage manual lens from the early '80s on eBay to compliment my FM2, namely a Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 AI-s Pancake lens, the version only been sold in Japan and it has a "D" on the barrel. Does anyone have any idea what does it mean?s-l1600.jpg

The marking is not in "The Complete Nikon System" by Braczko, the close-focus version is listed. What is the first few digits of the SN?

I've got two of those 50mm 1.8 pancake lenses. One of them has the "D" marking, the other one hasn't. I'm curious too with regards to the meaning of the mark. The "D" lens is a bit newer (serial# 2223415 vs. 2141473. Apart from that, they are exactly alike.
