Nikon Monarch Serial Number Question
I have just received my order from you of a pair of Nikon Monarch 8X42 binos and am extremely happy with them. They are a great replacement for my 40 yr old Bushnells that Hurricane Ivan dumped into the Gulf of Mexico. My question has to do with the serial number.
I know that this model is extremely popular with birders and other naturalists and I now know why. So I was sort of surprised when I looked at the serial number on my new Nikons and found it to be 000xxx where the x's were under 1000. Is it really possible that you shipped me a pair of binoculars whose manufacturing run was under 1000? Just curious? If this interpretation of the serial number is not correct, how do you interpret the serial number on Nikon Monarchs?
