Yes, it's in the documents. I work on a document to gather all the findings.

Rev. D/C PCB was approved on 16/03/1993 and the same month production began. Then follows E on 02/03/1993, F on 30/04/1993, NTSC G, NTSC H/PAL G, NTSC J/PAL H on 04/08/1993 and that's the line where the document ends. We have no records of a "PAL J" at all but logically it should be somewhere after 08/1993 what totally doesn't add up.

Please use http://milan.kovac.cc/atari/chipmunk/ to add your serial numbers...

I've found a photo that's showing the case serial number for that machine.

There is definitely something else to add to the serial number because my 1994 model cannot have a serial number as low as 4144.

1) My case is marked as a GER (Germany) model, however the "3" in the version digit written on the case is for PAL-B.
2) My case has an Atari label (not C-Lab), and yet the production month is December 1994 (almost 1995 :wink:). Maybe the previous owner swapped it ?
What's the highest known serial number for 1994 machines ?
