HP49G Serial Numbers



#3

Hello,

From what I can see the serial number on the HP49G does not go along with the rules of serial numbers on previous hp's.

Can anyone tell me how to decode the serial number on the HP49G ?

Thanks for any info/help/feedback !

Actually the HP49G serial number appears to follow the pattern of post 1996 models described here at http://www.hpmuseum.org/collect.htm#numbers

The following post on the COMP.SYS.HP48 newsgroup shows an example.

OK, let's see : ID 9 31 06203

1999 31th week #06203

So it is the 6203th HP 49G built, and it has been done in the 31th week of 1999. -- Thierry Hautem-Morissette thmorissette@videotron.ca HP 10A, HP 11C, HP 15C, HP 19B, HP 25C, HP 27S, HP 28C, HP 28S, HP 32E, HP 33E, HP 34E, HP 41C, HP 41CX, HP 42S, HP 48G, HP 95 LX and HP 200LX
