Model/Serial Number Plates Missing

As I inquire about machines some people tell me there are no serial plates on them. Would this mean they could be stolen? What would be the reason for removing them?

 

That's one reason, others are that it was removed to repaint (often the case if its a sticker) or if it was riveted that the rivets came loose or rusted.

 

Its not uncommon, especially for older machines, and not really a cause for concern but if it is a late model, like in the last 5 years, the fact that the serial sticker/plate is missing would have me asking more questions about where it came from and how the seller came into possession of it.

 

If you can get a pic you can post it here, some of the fronts are exclusive to the bottlers and on a late model machine that is a real cause for concern as the bottlers don't usually sell off equipment anymore.

The public DESTROYS anything and everything....and they are pros at it! I just noticed 2 serial number plates from my vendo machines were ripped off. Was it for thrills, scrap metal, laughs, trying to be cool, collectors items, dental floss?:huh:? Who knows! and I will never know either! I would not worry about serial numbers or plates...I would be more concerned that the machine works and MAKES MONEY$$$$$$$$$$$$
