Nikon 500mm F4E FL USA serial numbers?

Anybody with a known Nikon USA version 500mm F4E FL lens willing to share the first four digits of their Len’s serial number? Or better yet, has anybody already compiled a rough list of USA serial numbers for this lens?

BTW, I’m aware of the Photosynthesis site in New Zealand that has lists of lens serial numbers, but to my knowledge it doesn’t break out the USA ones.

I was enticed into purchasing a used one from KEH for 15% off on Black Friday, but they couldn’t tell me if it’s USA or grey. Ultimately it would need to be shipped to Nikon for a determination, but I’d like to get an idea before deciding to ship it to Nikon.  Round trip shipping to Nikon will cost between $250-$300.

My other option is to just return it.
