I remember it being shown in one of the Shanghai videos that the serial numbers don’t come off the line serially.

There were 100 Beta units and the Production unit numbering restarted at 001 since the h/w configuration is different (keyboard, foil, etc.).

That explains a lot. Especially with the comment that DM42 and DM41X serial numbers may be intermingled.
DM10, DM10L: 00031 / DM11, DM11L: 00112 / DM12, DM12L: 02074
DM15, DM15L: 11069 / DM16. DM16L: 02001 / DM41, DM41L: 00859
DM41X: 00036
DM42: 3108

I guess I missed that comment, but to be clear, each model has its own serial number range, as did Alpha and Beta series within each model.

The initial production batch had serial numbers reported in this forum > 6000. Was it really that large?
