The first serial number is on a Singer 401G made in Germany. It is missing the prefix. Where the expected prefix would be there is a blank space.


The second serial number is on a Singer 617U made at the Singer factory in Utsunomiya, Tochigi, Japan. The prefix of TB is clearly displayed, but the serial number itself is missing.

The only C serial number (from Wittenberge) is the example from Chrys, bottom right.
