Nikon varies the locations of the lens serial number over the years

The early manual AIS lenses have their SN engraved and white filled at the front end of the lens or the front of the zoom ring.  Latter lenses have their SN number shadowed engraved on the aperture ring.  Latest G lenses have their SN engraved in opposite side of the distance window (bottom of the lens) under the nameplate - near or under the words Made In Japan/China/Thailand etc.  Look for it in good light, it is sometime extremely faint
