I got this guitar when I was pretty young, (still young of course but.. i want to know what this guitar is and how much it would cost to buy one.   its a D-10 from whats on the sticker. Serial number 98043765 or it could be 98043705, not sure what the second to last one is, its faded a bit.

So far i can tell its a solid top because the grain continues in the soundhole, the sound is beautiful btw.

1. how much?

2. when was this made?

it was made in indonesia.

As you say, it's a D-10N, a basic dreadnought in natural finish. The top is laminate (plywood) unless the model number contains "S" or "SW."

Well, the downer is that nobody here has access to production numbers, & in any case for a standard model the company's records won't have much detail either. Yours probably left the factory April 1998. Since then, quality of entry-level instruments has risen even as prices have dropped, so there's not so much demand for a used D-10, even two decades old.

What exactly do you mean by "how much"? If you want to buy one, I can point you to listings $100-$150. For most individual looking to sell a guitar, they're fortunate to get 40%-60% of current market price, so at best you could maybe get like $90.
