Let's just check this the old fashion way, by just looking? What is on yours? Mine says 12042307248 on the headstock (I'm assuming that yours has it there also?).
If everybody else that has a one also post theirs we can see if they are unique or just uniquish (I am assuming here that you are going to make a spreadsheet or something to keep track ;)).

13042310081 is mine.
now that we have established they are in fact unique numbers
the next question is can they be looked up?

Looks like year, month and day as 2 numbers each followed by a serial or model variaton/ type.
How does the date match up to the purchase date?

you can enter the serial number on this website and find the date of manufacture and the factory of origin.

I think Ramone's link confirms HMS's guess is true.

I just put the serial of my Epiphone EB-0 bass in there: 12022303648 and that serial number seems to be of the same format as the uke.
My Epiphone guitar seems to be from an unrecognised factory but has the same kind of serial: SI04081916
I guess august 2004 might be right for that one though.
