I joined as a cadet in 1984, and my time in CAP has been uninterrupted. My CAPID begins with 113.

You're in the current number group, which transitioned from SSANs.

Indeed. But I didn't have an SSN when I joined CAP, so I was issued CAPSN 000914475 in 1984. That I would remember that number seems amazing.

I used to think that the CAPID numbering scheme followed a general pattern, but it doesn't seem to hold true.  My number is 104*** and I joined in August 1977 (12 years old, NYW).  I didn't have an SSN yet, either.

Actually, there is a scheme, or actually a sequence of them. See my posts above, and also do a search for "SSAN" with me as the post author. That will fill in most of the holes.

I joined in Apr. 1996 as a Cadet.. For the first year or year and a half, we used ssn as out Id numbers. Sometime after that, I was told we would no longer be using ssn numbers and we moved to the 6 digit numbers that we have now. I have a 207xxx number.

I've been thinking about this and you're right.  I recall that I had a different number as a cadet, so I went digging through my cadet file and sure enough, there it was: 776244!  The 77 prefix corresponds to my join year.
The 104 prefix number was assigned to me at some point after I became a senior member.  I'm having trouble figuring out when that happened, exactly.  I guess I didn't notice or really care at the time.

The 77 is a coincidence. That group of numbers, like the ones used today, were sequentially assigned, and had no correlation to year, wing, or anything else.

When I joined in 1987, my CAPSN began with 000. Then it changed to my SSAN a few years later. I had a lengthy break in membership and when I came back, my new CAPID began with 189. This, I believe, was based on when I first joined as a senior member, as my cadet information wasn't showing in eServices. When I called NHQ, they told me they had a separate system in place at the time that didn't "talk" to the new one.

Oops....read the title of the thread - joined as a senior member and not a cadet.  So much for "attention to detail"  ;D
