18-200 no serial number - Help!
May 30, 2012

I've read the other forum threads about users unable to find the serial number on the 18-200. I recently purchased a 18-200 VRI from ebay cheap with the hopes of getting it repaired and I have scoured the internet trying to find where the serial number is. Everyone says, "On the bottom side of the lens, in the indentation between the zoom and focus rings, above the white nikon lettering." All I have there is more Nikon lettering, no engravement. Between the focus ring and the mount it reads, "Nikon, Made in Thailand, DX SWM VR ED IF Aspherical %72." And between the focus ring and the zoom ring it reads, "Nikon, Made in Thailand, DX SWM VR ED IF Aspherical %72." Same thing. What kind of lens do I have? Is it a knockoff? A cheap repair?
