from yesterday I am proud to be the owner of a simplex byke. As fas as I know your serial number does not have letters and only has 5 digits. It means I think it was manufactured between 1950 and 1953 since it was 1953 when introduced the 6 digits.

I just bought my first frame and was wondering what it means when the frame is referred to a 18 1/2 in.

That is the length of the frame tube that goes from the pedals to the seat.
