How low is your Model 1 Genesis' serial number?

From 1989-1993, the 16-bit revolution was in full swing, with the Sega Genesis, NEC Turbo Grafx 16, Super Nintendo, and SNK Neo-Geo (self-proclaimed 24-bit)

How low is your Model 1 Genesis' serial number?

Postby Zap! » Mon Jul 13, 2015 9:48 pm

I recently started reading on some other forums about low Sega Genesis serial numbers. I have had my Genesis since August, 1989, so I knew it would be very low. My number is 39S13220.

Now, the first number the factory it was made in (in my case, Taiwan). The second letter is the last digit of the year it was made in, so 1989. The next letter (S) is the production run. Finally, after that is the number. So mine is number 13,220 to come out of that factory's production.

Anyway, here's a pic underneath my Genesis. So what do you think?
