HP 41C with hand engraved serial number



#2

I just received a 41CX, that is in very nice shape with a serial number that is neatly hand engraved rather than stamped. Does anyone know what the reason for this might be?

Yes, someone, somewhere, knows.

HP used to replace, rather than repair, 41's that were returned under warranty. The replacement machine was hand-engraved with the same serial number as the faulty unit. I have a replacement 41CV that I got this way.
