JS -1 serial number

Hi everybody.

I've had a JS-1 in my possession for 20 years, I bought it second hand as a teenager. From what I've researched online I suspect it to be 1990/91 and it looks identical to others of that time.

Weird thing is; it has no serial number. Where the number should be, the plate is just clear - it's smooth if you run your finger over it so I'd never suspected that it'd been scratched off or anything sinister etc.

I wondered if anyone else has encountered this or could shed any light?

Many thanks

Consider it an oddity and somebody pulled a plate out of the wrong box.
