the way you can tell which rangefinder you have is: 
look at the rangefinder widow with reflective viewwing (a light source at 90-180 degrees from the horizontal plane of the glass. if the glass is grey/blue in reflected viewing, it is an m7 with the "old" m6 rangefinder produced with anti-reflective coated windows. if the rangefinder window is amber toned then you have the new corrected rangefinder in the mp. 

the number stuff is horseshit. leica batches numbers for production runs years in advance. production runs (the finite number of same model units produced to fill a sale future forecast) are based forward deliveries. it is therefore possible to have a production run using a group of older serial numbers if sales unexpectedly slowed down.
