    There's an auction on ebay for a copper penny, serial is NAL xxxx-x. Does that mean something? I've heard of no serial or "W" for a warranty repair, and the 24k's also had "SAMPLE" serials. For a test run, that seems like a pretty large number range. Any ideas?

    WOW that is amazing. Thats not normal. not warranty, not production, not special edition..

    normal Copper Penny's are serialed PCXXXXXX.

    This, my friend, is most likely a factory prototype.

    Not a serial number, it's a vendor number. Essentially it is a sample pair, but Oakley used to try to keep tabs on these so they did not just get sold off immediatly like they do now.
