Identification of Gibson LG-0(?) model acoustic

I am trying to confirm date and model of my guitar. It is a small Gibson acoustic that appears in many ways to be an LG-0 but I have some questions.

Headstock is natural and not painted. Stamped on the back with 551209. Screwed on pick guard. 
Websites give me conflicting information based on the features and the id # on the headtsock.

Looks like this. What do I have here?

‘68 B15, I had an identical one from 2007-2010 or so. On tour it was my dressing room guitar that I used for warming up so I could leave my SJ200 and Dove onstage after soundcheck. Really nice, rootsy little guitar that had a vibe all of its own. Not a tremendously loud guitar but very warm. Mine had the Melody Maker style narrow headstock too, as I think they all did.
