That's a little bit odd. That's where they are usually located. If the bike has been repainted then the possibility of the dropout having been replaced exists. Can't say that I've ever seen an older Hetchins without a serial number.
> Although my eyes aren't what they used to be, I don't find any numbers on either dropout. They(the dropouts)don't appear to have been replaced, but who knows? Any other suggestions/possibilities?
