The serial numbers on the early Elnas, pre Star Series, were found stamped on the inside of the casting to the right of the thread take up slot. This is easily seen when the hinged face plate is opened; to open fully it is necessary to lower the presser bar lever. From the Star series on, the serial number was stamped on the specification plate below the hand wheel. If this has been removed the number was also stamped on the casting underneath the switch plate (socket). The Lotus series again had the serial number on the specification plate; it was also stamped on the casting on the base and can be viewed through a slot in the base cover plate.
