Serial #169381 from 25.VIII.1980 (fotoua.com)

Known serial number range (please extend the range with your serials):
7-digit serial number on the backside of the top:
#6504727(fotoua.com) to #8639223(fotoua.com)

It's sad that FED decided to stamp 6-digit serials on the bottom plate of the back door, because those doors can be accidently changed easily.
FED-3, Fed-4 and Fed-5 doors are the same, stamping the serial on the door might have simplified production.
There are big stamped serials (around 21mm long for 6 digits)
and small serials (around 13mm long for 6 digits).
