    I've got no clue how to date my MDs, but if it involves opening them I'll update this later.

    Model 1 NA - VA6 B20905906 -Japan (My original Genesis)
    Model 1 NA - VA6 020124712 - Taiwan
    Model 1 NA - VA2 39X03441 - Taiwan (My main Genesis)

    Yes, a penguin taught me French in Antarctica. Comment allez-vous ce soir?

    I don't know the date or serial number off hand, but the other info for my Genesis is as follows:

    Model 2
    Revision VA0
    Made in Taiwan

    I can get the serial number later this evening. It might be worth nothing other bits of information, such as the video encoder, ASIC version, etc.

    I suggest using hyphens ( - ) to separate the bits of information, so that you don't get confused with the spacing. Quite a few parts need alignment...

    When I have time, I'll see about listing my many Geneses, but it won't be right now.

    Can we also get users to take snapshots of the serials? If so, I can possibly rig up an online database similar to the one I have with Saturn serials.

    Thanks for posting! Adding them.

    BTW, SEGACOOL, I think the 020852807 is a VA6. Not too sure though.

    You compare the manufacture date of several components, such as the CPU, RAMs, etc. and take the most recent one.

    I suppose it's a VA2, for it's even older than mine.

    Anyway, thanks for the info. Adding it!
