>Can anyone explain why the M6 has its serial number stamped on top of the

enough space. And I really miss the beautiful classic Leica logo on the

The serial number is engraved on the chassis as well. If you remove the
bottom of the camera and then remove the plate with the film loading
schematic on it you will find the serial number underneath. The tops are
left blank so that the special edition information can be carved in without
having to tool up a batch just for those purposes.
