Forgive me if I've missed the point of collecting serial numbers, but found the ones below currently on ebay. Posting images from ebay is probably a no-no but these are the numbers (all d32):

Swansea

033793 DG
057402 DG

Port Talbot

080799 DG
103566 DG
158756 DG
166689 DG
237196 DG
249677 DG
253680 DG


With odds of 'fairly unlikely', 249677 just happens to be immediately before one already in the wiki :)

Blimey, you have some early machines! I thought my 003300 was old. Are these from 'back in the day', or more recent purchases? Just intrigued!

It was more luck than judgement. I had a d32 & d64 in the 80's, but the others were acquired in the 90's when people were pretty much giving the things away.

Think it's better collected to the Wiki ;)

Maybe we can determine the used "number ranges", divided according to the production site ?!?
But then we would probably need a lot more data.

So long as you ignore the spammy nonsense serial numbers you can add the numbers from the survey at http://www.studio68.no/surveys/dragon/default.asp. (Vato has not logged in here since 2017 so it is highly unlikely that the spam entries in the survey will be removed.)

The interesting point of the serial number list for me is how many 32's were made in Swansea before going to Port Talbot.
I have a number of Dragons and the serial numbers I have follow the pattern of about 60,000 units being produced in Swansea and any later numbers from Port Talbot, but I have one number that fits in between the Swansea and Port Talbot numbers present in the current list and that is 059553DG from Swansea, which narrows the gap a little.
