    Bought an Orville 335 a few months back. Serial number J607041.
    Today on a whim i punched "Orville 335" into ebay to see if there were many others out there.
    Up pops this one in Japan

    Reminds me of the time I was stuck in traffic behind someone whose license plate was 1 digit off from mine.

    That's not mere coincidence. You need to buy that one too. And then keep searching for more....

    What is the significance of sequential serial numbers? Does it mean yours is a counterfeit?

    at my first job as a busboy, we punched a timecard at start and end of shift
    the cards were preprinted with our names, addresses and Social Security numbers
    one day, I grabbed a card from the rack to punch out only to realize it was not mine
    it belonged to a waitress I was dating
    she had the next sequential SS#

    It could mean they were made next to each other on the same day. Or not.

    I'm guessing they are twins.

    I would certainly love to buy more Orvilles, but probably different models to the one I have (the one I posted the serial number of is basically identical to mine). I recently missed out on an Orville doublecut LPJ at a bargain price (too slow). An SG would be something I'd jump at too if i could sneak one into the house.

    no
    would have looked suspicious on a "Married Filing Jointly" Tax Return, though
