Where is the serial # on this one??
There a paper sticker inside the slot for the film cassette that says 155725 but I though the first 2 digits need to be year?

It was not the standard. Simply usual practice, not more.
Numbering was defined by the designer* in the product documentation.

*) -- The "designer" in sense "the technical developer", instead of the "art-designer" (in the Russia "konstruktor" and "desayner" are different trades and words, but in English -- one word: "designer" ;).

Thanks Zoom, what's interesting is that the Kiev 19 has year prefix but 19M has a small paper sticker inside the camera.. how odd is that! 19M has much more plastic parts as well, so maybe paper sticker is a next logical step.

Just read my archives: Both mine that I have had did have the yearcode, as I have written 1995 & 1996 in my list. It is also possible that I have used lens serial if that one has "yearcode"?

How about lens, I haven't got any 19M's any more to check from? Or did mine have passports with data...

Juhani,
You are absolutely right. Kiev-19M camera came with Arsat-H 50mm lens. To look at my case first lens was made in 1995, and second one - in 1996.
