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.

This picture shows the difference in stampings of serial numbers in the G series from Elizabethport and how easy it is to mistake a G for a C in some cases.

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