I once took my old M6 into a local  repair shop for some minor adjustments.
 They placed a small sticker on the top of the camera body with a reference
number, that they could refer to when I called in for information.  That
sticker was on the camera no more than a day or two, but to this day I see
a faint outline of where that sticker was placed.  I haven't tried using
solvents to get rid of it, but I have use damp rags and rubbed it quite
vigourously, to no avail.
