on (6/6/18) I purchased a new 21 inch lawn mower. The battery that came with it is dated Feb 2017, already 1&1/2 year. Is the battery life affected by just sitting in the store for this long. Can I exchange for a more currently manufactured battery

Ego’s batteries have an automatic long-term storage mode that kicks in after 30 days of inactivity. The battery automatically depletes to 30% capacity. This reduces the impact of sitting for long periods, be it on the shelf or in your garage.

The three year battery warranty starts from the date of purchase, not the date of manufacture, so you’re good to go.
