If I remember correctly, the serial number for the Nikkor lenses of this generation is generally engraved in the aperture ring right between the mount and the knurl.  The numbers are so thin that it is very hard to read.

Thank you Akira San  :) Your memories are correct. Serial number is 275631, so one of the latest copies produced.
