Count its rings like on a tree? Smile Look in its mouth, like you would a horse?

Or just google and see what you can find. Maybe about 6-8 years old is my guess.

AF-S 18-70/3.5-4.5 G IF-ED ...... Thailand 4+ 2000001 ....... 2005497 - 4256520 ........ 2256520 total ....... Jan 04 -

The start serial number was 2005497 in Jan 04, so you'll can take a guess from the serial number on your lens.
